Here’s a cool story by Sports Illustrated that a facebook friend brought to my attention about NFL fullback Tony Richardson. If Jesus were to speak highly of one particularly position in football, it would definitely be the Fullback. Before the book and movie The Blind Side, I would have been tempted to say offensive line, but now they’re getting more publicity and lots of money. Fullbacks make MUCH less.
The fullback position is all about blocking, and sacrificing yourself for the good of the running back. Of course, in that sacrifice, there is great joy, and that comes out very clearly in this well done article. This is definitely worth the read, and I’ll be rooting for this 39 year old to make some NFL roster. The NFL needs more Richardson’s for sure.
