An NFL Player Is Returning His Sons' Trophies, And THIS Is Why

August 17, 2015

James Harrison knows a thing or two about winning, but it didn't come easy for him.

He could only make NFL practice squads and was cut four times. He considered not playing anymore before finally being signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers. With a lot of hard work, Harrison became a five-time Pro Bowl selection and won two Super Bowls.

So when Harrison's kids returned home this week with "participation trophies" from school, he  posted on his Instagram page that he's going to immediately return them.

"I came home to find out that my boys received two trophies for nothing, participation trophies! While I am very proud of my boys for everything they do and will encourage them till the day I die, these trophies will be given back until they EARN a real trophy. I'm sorry I'm not sorry for believing that everything in life should be earned and I'm not about to raise two boys to be men by making them believe that they are entitled to something just because they tried their best…cause sometimes your best is not enough, and that should drive you to want to do better…not cry and whine until somebody gives you something to shut u up and keep you happy.#harrisonfamilyvalues"
