Remember Steve Fitzhugh, safety for the Denver Broncos? Probably not, since he only played in three games but there are plenty of kids in America today who know of himsince he’s become quite the high school speaker. He has a way of connecting with teens with a knack for making kids think. Here’s a 15-minute video from a high school presentation that really shows the impact of peer pressure. Here’s a story about a recent presentation he gave in Virginia and here’s his website that seems a tad outdated.
Even the New York Times, which knows everything that is righteous and good (sarcasm!) declared Sir Albert one of the best.
The former coach’s impact is evidenced in this well done blog post by Mechelle Voepel of ESPN fame, although I think the coach’s impact is deeper than skin deep.
