So many athletes today go broke by buying as many cars, houses or seeing how many diamonds they can fit into their ears. So when a story is written about an NFL player staying true to his humble roots it is very refreshing to see.
Alfred Morris, the running back of the Washington Redskins and on my list of guys you should pick up in fantasy football is setting a great example for young players in the NFL. Hell, he is a great example for any young kid who is unhappy because they don’t have a brand new car or truck when they turn 16. Morris is driving a car, just a few years younger than he is and tips the scales at a value of around 1,200 dollars.

This is a great story of a young man who has his head on straight and realizes you don’t have to have a flashy car to prove to people how cool you are.
