A B-C Lion is adding his voice to the debate over ‘participation trophies’.
An N-F-L Linebacker made waves by forcing his kids to return theirs.
“Looking at old pictures and looking at old trophies… and bringing me back to that time. If we didn’t have those trophies I would only have so much I could remember. But now thankfully I have the trophy, I remember when it was given to me and how I felt.
That’s Lion’s fullback Rolly Lumbala on trophies from *his* youth.
He says for kids — something to represent a season is important.
But he says it’s a different story once youth get serious about a career in sports.
“Then you gotta hold them to a different accountability, and you gotta push them a little bit more perhaps.”
Pittsburgh Steeler James Harrison sparked debate when he posted to Instagram saying kids shouldn’t be rewarded just for doing their best.
