Boyhood Sports Heroes

Before the "championship game" of my son's T-ball season, the recreation director asked me some questions about him, so they can have information for the announcers. When she asked who Sender's favorite athlete is, I said, "His Dad, of course."

I'm not sure what a 5 year old would say, but when I was a little older than him, I had a couple of favorite football players. Since I'm at football camp this week with the Allendale-Fairfax High School team, I figured it's an opportune time to show some videos of my sports heroes.

Barry Sanders. Impossible to tackle, and incredibly humble man.

Bo Jackson. All-around athlete, fast and strong. Freak injury shortened his football career.


Who were you childhood sports hero or heroes?
