He pushed through everything and he had the courage to prove people that he could be a quarterback in the NFL. The word believe was used because that is exactly what he did.

Despite Tressel’s inaction, Ohio State only suspended their prized coach for 2 games of the 2011 football season and fined him a measly $250,000 of his $3.5 million annual salary (Schlabach). Ohio State takes pride in its excellence in their sports and academics program, but his punishment was weak (Schlabach).

I hate to say this, but a couple of my mom’s brothers and sisters are racists. After September 11, my family became extremely racists and it was to the point that they could not stand to look at anyone who came from the Middle East.
