A really moving video and story on #88 back in the day, Courtney Hawkins :helmet:
He is now living in Flint and is a successful high school football coach at his alma mater. :tt02:His team is in the playoffs for the second year in a row.

Video is 10 minutes long but wow!! Well work watching! I had a few tears in my eyes after watching it. Very moved by the man, looks like he really is trying to make a difference in the lives of the kids he coaches.

Didn't see any video (may have been blocked) but that was a great article. Good for him. I always liked Courtney Hawkins. He put Troy Edwards in his place when he was drafted. :thumbsup:

That is strange it showed up on my Mac and my PC at home.
Should be a black square box to the right where the story start and there is a play button.

Too bad Courtney didn't last longer with the Steelers but then again going up the middle as the 3rd down guy wears on the body.
