In June, Philadelphia Eagles Wide Receiver Riley Cooper stirred up controversy over his racial comments about an African American Man was caught on video. It looked like his career in Philadelphia was over. Some folks and fans called for his head. Michael Vick publicly forgave him. That spoke volumes about Vick’s character and it changed Cooper’s career.
Vick has redeemed himself. He is a leader and does all he can to lift his teammates up. He is happy when they do well even if one of those teammates may be taking his job. That is what a leader does, they revel in others’ accomplishment. His actions are the actions of maturity.
