Do the Right Thing

“Don’t be fooled by the lie that somebody will tell you — that you’re a great athlete because of what you do on the field. That’s not true! You’re great because of what you do off the field and you bring that integrity onto the field.”
Ernie Sims Jr. at a Kids & Pros Camp in 2007

Sharing a touching glimpse of his proudest moments of his sons’ accomplishments (Ernie Sims III, linebacker for the Detroit Lions, and Marcus Sims, running back at Florida State University), Ernie Sims Jr. relates that above all of their significant football accomplishments that Ernie III has a “great heart”, and that during high school Marcus showed the fortitude to go against the crowd to do the right thing. “Not only were they great football players, but they were great citizens,” Sims beamed. “It’s not so much what you do on the field that makes you great,” he continued, “it’s what you do off the field.”
