Many of the students know I am a big Portland Timbers fan.
I am also a fan of "complete" athletes. "Complete" athletes are players who excel in their physical skills, but always want to improve. "Complete" athletes also excel with top-notch sportsmanship and effort.
After reading this article from The Oregonian, I believe the Timbers' Darlington Nagbe is a "complete" athlete.
Read it with your kids (sports fans and non-sports fans). You don't have to be a soccer fan or sports fan to enjoy it. Some great topics to discuss!
My favorite quote from the article...
"I'd take being a better person over a better player any day." - Darlington Nagbe
