NFL Star’s Sons Bring Home These Trophies. When He Learns Why They Got Them, He Sends ‘Em Right Back
< < Go Back
Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison has a reputation for hard work. Whether it’s on the field or keeping in shape during the off-season, he believes that everything in life should be earned.
When Harrison found out that his two sons had been given “participation” trophies, he wasn’t happy. So he gave them back.
The NFL star explained on Instagram:
“I came home to find out that my boys received two trophies for nothing, participation trophies! While I am very proud of my boys for everything they do and will encourage them till the day I die, these trophies will be given back until they EARN a real trophy.
I’m sorry I’m not sorry for believing that everything in life should be earned and I’m not about to raise two boys to be men by making them believe that they are entitled to something just because they tried their best…cause sometimes your best is not enough, and that should drive you to want to do better…not cry and whine until somebody gives you something to shut u up and keep you happy. #harrisonfamilyvalues“
