Coach Stinson was a personal friend of Charlie Wise, the offensive coordinator of the New York Jets. What happened that day will stay with me for a long time.

Perhaps no other jobs than coaching has the absence of African Americans been more noticeable. Over the past two decade there has been little to no improvement in the area.

That being said what is an athlete going to do once he or she is done, money does not last forever; especially the way professionals spend their money. One of the coolest things I remember about high school is that we had a teacher that had won two super bowls with the Steelers. This man is a prime example of why you should get your education: he graduated from Clemson and after he had his professional career, he ended up having to get another job.
