Ricky Williams does it right and becomes “Ricky The Role Model”
September 4, 2008 by sportsroids
Ricky Williams has been through all the uppers and downers the NFL can offer. He has been through much controversy in his career and it is refreshing to see a player attempt to get it right the 2nd time around. Even though Ricky Williams had gone to school in Texas, he never graduated, and it is great to see him now taking that initiative at age 31 to go back to school. Ricky has enrolled in classes Nova Southeastern University, and plans on trying to become a Doctor one day. Ricky told reporters, ”I like seeing people feel better, and I know what it feels like to deal with pain,”. It is a cold hard fact that Williams knows what it is feels like to deal with pain. The way the dolphins ran him into the ground was awful. His number was called almost 420 times a season for over two years straight. It was just hard to watch. It’s good to see that he is doing things right and going back into school, so that when he is done with the game, he as something to fall back on. This story should be all over the news just because it sends out the right message to our youth. Look at Ricky, he is starting to become a role model. Run Ricky Run…….
