Is greatness still within us?

December 11, 2012

After the airing of the Heisman Trophy Presentation, ESPN showed a 30 for 30 film that documented the unfortunately short career of Vincent Edward “Bo” Jackson. The film, “You Don’t Know Bo”, was somewhat of a folktale telling the amazing feats Bo Jackson was said to have done and actually accomplished. I had the privilege to watch this documentary and thought it asked me a question, “Is greatness still within us?”

On a routine tackle, Jeb Stevens found himself injured, a situation he never expected.
“I did not know what to think,” commented Stevens, “When they said it was severe enough to bring a helicopter, it really scared me.”
