This is a nice story,it is good when a player like Sanders gives back to the kids and football in his own way. The man has a soft spot in his heart for kids who want to strive forward in life. The man gives back to the community, kudos to Bob Sanders.

I'm a Patriot's fan so it pains me to admit it but kudos to Sanders. Regardless of the Colt's/Pat's rivalry it is refreshing to read a "feel good" article once in awhile.

I would venture a guess that 99% of the NFL is made up of good guy's. Unfortunately the 1% get all of the press.

That kid (nd his classmates) will never forget the time he "brought" Bob Sanders to school. Good enough for me.

Without meaning to "date" myself. I'll never forget the time I had the pleasure to meet Bobby Orr (approx. 1970). He preached the same story, stay in school, listen to your parents etc. Whether or not they need to or have to reach out to the community is moot. These guy's can have an impact on young kids.

On another note: Go Pat's!

And I thought you only read articles that included the Pats.

You were doing so well until that last note....

"Sanders Hit in Classroom: 5th Graders Teach Him to Read." Tomorrow's headline: "Next up for Sanders: Writing!" You all fell for the oldest trick in the book: pro sports marketing. Good for Bob, good for the Colts, and good for this kid. But role model? Whatever. I would venture to guess you could not have found an individual with less in common with these kids had you searched the entire country. My favorite Sanders quote from this outing: "Stay in school." Bob Sanders left Iowa without a degree! And what's even more pathetic is that he was in a football major: African American World Studies. 92% of Hawkeyes enrolled in that program are athletes. It's not different than 100 other football schools. But let's get real here: this guy has no business walking into any school in an affluent white suburb to proclaim the virtues of staying in school. You guys all fell for this one hook, line, and sinker. Where Sanders belongs is an IPS school, where he tells them the single biggest regret in his life is not getting his degree, because he's a knee injury away from saying "would you like fries with that?" the rest of his life. There -- class is over. Consider yourself educated (and for crying out loud, get a freaking dose of reality before it's too late, would you?)
Maybe we should have sent the kid from "Nebraska Mall Shooting" that's a great role model!

"I'm actually 5-8 and a half," Sanders said. "People don't know, but that half inch means a lot to me."

I appreciate his sense of humor about his height even though he's apart of an organization where size is empasized.
