When I read this, however, it reminded me of a true hero who always put others above himself. This hero was Pat Tillman. He went to Leland High School, where he first realized his passion for football.
Throughout high school, Tillman played football and realized he was very talented.
He received a scholarship to Arizona State University. Here, he excelled at academics, earning his degree in three and a half years and garnering many awards at football.
InTillman was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals and went pro. In two years, Tillman had earned a starting spot and had already won many more awards with the Cardinals. He decided to give up his football career and join the army.
Before he left he married a good friend from high school, Marie. Then he a trained to become an Army Ranger and then fought together in Afghanistan. Sadly, on April 22,Tillman died in Afghanistan at the young age of Although Tillman lived such a short life, he accomplished great things and taught the world what it meant to be a true hero.
A hero must possess selflessness, a strong work ethic, and an unfailing sense of motivation. With hard work and motivation, a person can be successful. But to be a hero, a person has to be not only successful, but also selfless and impact others greatly.
Pat Tillman had all of these traits. He consistently worked hard to be successful, stayed strongly motivated in spite of obstacles, and selflessly made sacrifices for the benefit of his country. He showed his desire to work hard when he joined the army instead of keeping his relatively easy football life.
The training alone is nearly intolerable: Rangers are sent to places where the danger is the worst" Johnson and Murr. Here, Tillman joined the army where he has to train in harsh conditions twenty hours a day when instead he could have just played football a few hours a day and relaxed for the rest of the day.
The choice he has in this position is clearly between an easy life with not much hard work and an extremely harsh, tough life as an army ranger. Tillman chose the harsh army ranger life. Him working this insanely hard 20 hours a day for 28 days in the most brutal conditions on the planet shows he is not only hard working once, but also has a great work ethic and kept at this training for 28 days.CLICK HERE for periodic live video news feeds from the Associated Press _____ Click on Redbug for "live" streaming Redbug Sports.
