WOW – Words of Wisdom
If you watched the Super Bowl on Sunday, you would have seen the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35 in a game that went down to the last seconds.
Although Jalen Hurts (of the Eagles) was impressive during the game, how he handled himself and the press after the loss was even more impressive. He showed his true character and is a model for how we should all handle defeat and failure. Check out this article (and the video) about Jalen after he lost the Super Bowl to see what I’m talking about:

When people asked me which team I was rooting for, I decided to not root for a team, but for a player – Jalen Hurts – because of what he stands for. Here are two articles that got me on the Jalen Hurts bandwagon:

Read all three articles – and you’ll see why I admire this young man so much! Definitely a role model for young people today!
