I’m a big fan of Barry Sanders. He was an amazing athlete. And would easily have beaten Walter Peyton’s rushing record for yards in a career.
He scored often. And each time he did, he acted just like he belonged there. Nothing heroic, no Sharpies, no dancing or jumping.
Just a guy doing what he does.
So I get the spirit behind the rules that are being imposed in college and high school; we wanna end the taunting and the celebration. But THIS, really, is what we have come down to?
The kid raised his arm for two steps. He just scored the touchdown that would have won the State Football Championship. The kids is ALLOWED to express joy and accomplishment.
