Chuck’s Sports Ethics Hero Award

LB Darius Fleming: Sports Ethics Hero

Darius Fleming

Maybe the mere mention of the New England Patriots turns your stomach, or perhaps you wear New England Patriots pajamas to sleep (even in the summer) and live and die with every Tom Brady snap. Either way, it’s OK by us. This story is about a Patriots player, but the real story is about the choices that each one of us can make in life. We’d be fools to not mention that the body of any athlete is his or her tool, and the higher one goes, high school to […]

Chuck’s Sports Ethics Hero Award: Lauren Hill

Lauren Hill

It would not be a major assumption on my part to say that chances are you have never heard of Division III, Mount St. Joseph University in Cincinnati, Ohio. I personally love Division III sports because there is still a strong core of student athletes who play sports for all of the right reasons. While every so often, an outstanding athlete emerges from D-III ranks to become a professional standout (Fred Jackson of the Buffalo Bills comes to mind), most of the athletes go on to all kinds of careers […]

Cameron Tringale: Chuck’s Sports Ethics Hero Award

“Realizing that there could be the slightest doubt that the swing over the ball should have been recorded as a stroke, I spoke with the PGA of America and shared with them my conclusion that the stroke should have been recorded.” It was with great interest that I read a Bleacher Report article by Tyler Conway (August 17, 2014) on golfer Cameron Tringale entitled, “Cameron Tringale Confesses to PGA Championship Error, Loses More Than $50, 000.” According to the article: “Tringale, 26, claims to have missed a stroke when attempting […]

Charlie Strong: An Ethical Good Guy

Every so often, I like to hand out the Sports Ethics Ethical Good Guy Award. To be honest, this award is getting harder and harder to give out but Charlie Strong renews my faith. Before I go any further, let me say that this award comes with absolutely no cash prizes or  car keys, and if you’ve been following NCAA issues, it doesn’t even come with cream cheese and bagels! In any case, Charlie Strong gets my respect and gratitude, for part of his message is my message; choices and […]

Jon Kitna, an Ethical Hero by any Math Equation

Jon Kitna is able to do something that few of us can ever imagine doing – he is a professional football player who played quarterback for 16 years and one game. What I mean to say, is that two years after his official retirement from football, he was called out of retirement to serve as a back-up for a single Dallas Cowboys game. It was not a publicity stunt; Kitna, 41 years of age, was familiar with the Cowboys offense (having played there) and was asked back to stand in […]
