Like millions of people around the world, I was affected upon hearing of Kobe Bryant’s sudden death.
As a true Angeleno and a Kobe fan, I couldn’t believe the tragic news.
Later in the day, once the news set in, I felt compelled to watch his documentary, “Kobe Bryant’s Muse.” I wanted to gain inspiration and continue to share his legacy.
I know many of us are hard workers, competitive and high achievers and that’s something Kobe would have been proud of.
I’m going to believe that Kobe’s passing can help raise our collective ability to accomplish the things most important to us.
I’m going to honor Kobe by leveling my up my work ethic, my drive, my competitive spirit and all other aspects possible.
Thank you Kobe for being a excellent example of a lifelong learner. Your desire to grow and improve showed the world what happens when you have goals and go after them, hard.
I challenge everyone to take on the “Kobe Challenge” with me. Let’s commit to playing to the fullest extent and to the best of our abilities. I’m participating in the challenge and invite you to join me. Let’s be greater together.

The aggressive sport of football never fails to keep me on the edge of my seat. With brutal collisions, miracle plays, and jaw-dropping sequences, the football season is never boring. However, the game wouldn’t be the same without certain players that changed the way we view the sport today.
“Broadway Joe” Namath
Joe Namath is a legendary football player that almost every New Yorker should be familiar with. Playing for the New York Jets for nearly his entire career, Namath was named the Super Bowl MVP and was ultimately able to get his jersey retired with the Jets.
Not only was the great Namath a star on the field, but he had success off of it as well. He hosted his own television show and starred in a number of movies, which led to various show-business opportunities.
Terry Bradshaw was another fantastic quarterback who played the game with intensity and fierceness. The ultimate competitor, Bradshaw led the Pittsburgh Steelers to victory four times and won numerous MVP titles, which is no easy feat. Not only that, Bradshaw was also inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the College Football Hall of Fame.
The former Arizona Cardinals defensive back chose to serve his country as opposed to signing a multi-million dollar contract with the team. The star defensive stalwart was unfortunately killed in action but his memory and actions live on and continue to play a huge role in the NFL.
