This is great! According to the Yahoo Sports Shutdown Corner blog, David Bruton of the Denver Broncos is spending the NFL lockout working as a substitute teacher in his home state of Ohio. It’s nice to hear an inspiring story like that. And nice job by whoever initially put the spotlight on this and got it some media attention. I’m happy to see Bruton is getting some recognition for choosing to do this with his time.

I especially liked this line: “Bruton, who was selected by the Broncos in the fourth round of the 2009 draft, has also kept his athleticism at peak level by playing kickball at recess with the aforementioned second-graders.”
