Mick's Bag: Grounded Peppers
Thu Jun 23, 2005
Mick Mixon writes about Julius Peppers: "American society identifies and isolates its great athletes and artists at an early age. They are culled out and catered to, photographed and interviewed, and poked and prodded like prize cattle. Over time, especially for a small-town-guy-turned-superstar like Pep, all that attention can mess with a person's thinking. Happily, that hasn't happened to Pep. He is aware of his remarkable physical gifts but he remains one of the hardest workers on the team. And he is off-the-charts humble."
