Star Athlete Gives Up Cushy TV Job to Help Kids

Aaron Taylor, the All-America offensive lineman from Notre Dame who played six years in the National Football League, just gave up his high paying TV job at ABC Sports to focus on making meaningful contributions to society: "Instead of providing halftime analysis on Saturdays this fall, Taylor will stay home in San Diego and serve on the board of a mentoring organization called "Boys to Men," help do fundraising for the YMCA, and provide assistance in other ways for children and education." He says he is doing what will make him feel good. The full story at Contra Costa Times reminds us that many pro athletes help others — and feel great about it!
