Living in Canada restricts me from having the opportunity of attending many games@ FedEx, but was lucky enough to see him live one game many years ago. His impact as a player struck chords with me that have not felt many times in my life. As a die hard sports fan and one who bleeds the essence of Redskins football, I will forever cherish that one day, that memory, forever.
My youngest son who is only 9 years old and has just begun his football career ( I hope ) was so adamant that he chose Taylor's number for his jersey, his coach question why it was so important to him. He looked at his coach while I stood beside him and simply said " for Sean Taylor, the greatest Redskin". It brought a smile and a shock to his coaches face, as he knew my son never seen him play. He asked how he knew about Taylor after handing my son his much sought after number. I told him I have been teaching my son the importance of playing at a high level each and every play, but more importantly, to give it your all and be the greatest team mate you can be....such as Sean was.
My song old me, he' ll never where another number......one of many proud moments for a father north of the border
