While he’s been mired in a sub-par season on the field, off the field, Miami RB Ronnie Brown has been…awesome.
Check out this story about how he is doing what he can to try to reduce teen violence in an area that has experienced some particularly ugly school violence incidents (in/around the Miami area). It’s hard to overestimate the potential impact Brown may be having on these kids. Kids this age are so easily influenced. Unfortunately for some of the kids who resort to violence in particular, the influence is usually not positive. By coming in and taking an inflexible and very public stand against violence – a very cool Ronnie Brown is doing his part to counter the sentiment among some of these kids that violence is cool, or even OK. Nicely done Ronnie.
(Now, run over the Bears this week…with reckless violence.)
