Eddie Brown was an arena football player who was consistently the best wide receiver in the league, he would eventually go on to be a father as well. With his position came responsibilities such as catching the ball thrown by the quarterback, running his routes, and scoring points. This description is not exclusive when describing Eddie, it actually could be used for his son, Antonio Brown, who is even more successful now than his father ever was or will be. Antonio and his father had much in common, the most important difference is that Eddie played in the Arena League, and Antonio Brown played in the National Football League. Truthfully Antonio Brown is a one of a kind person, and a unique athlete which will only come into our lives every decade or less. The long road to success start similarly to his father 's; playing at the collegiate level at a D1 school. First I will take you back to long before he had aspirations to be on an NFL team. When Antonio was a young man in high school, he was not the cool kid in school, or the most popular, or even the most talented. His fellow classmates referred to him as “Bony Tony”, this was because if his stature and weight. He was not a highly recruited player and was an underdog to actually make the team. When it came to his freshman year of college he had actually earned a spot on the Central Michigan Chippewas. This was news seemed great at the time but he really would not see the playing field much until his sophomore year. This is when his current life really began to take shape. He was the star special teams player, a decent wide receiver, and he had earned two player of the year trophies in his college career. This is when he decided to make the jump to the pro leagues. He is not... ... middle of paper ... ... how busy he may be to try to positively effect the young mans life. When you really lay out all of his attributes both on and off the field you really start to see the bigger picture. Not only is this guy one of the best in the NFL now but he could be one of the best wide receivers in the history of the league. He will not be remembered solely as an amazing talent however, he will also be remembered for his of the field activities. Such as helping out the paralyzed kid in need of a friend in tough times, or helping kids in need of a role model. For everything that he has shown me to this point, even after he is old and done with football he will be a great man to others in his society in the future. His story goes to show all people adults, and kids alike that if you keep a good head on your shoulders, and never quit you can achieve your biggest and wildest dreams.
