One terrific example to follow...

With all of the news coverage about professional athletes fighting with each other and getting in trouble with the law, the Washington Redskins' new rookie quarterback, Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III (aka RGIII) truly stands out. Not only does he come across as an incredibly thoughtful, intelligent, and funny young man, he seems truly appreciative of the opportunities he is getting. To me, that is pretty incredible, considering this is a recent college graduate picked second overall in the NFL draft, who will be the starting quarterback for a football team desperately hoping its luck will turn around.

Imagine if young children start looking up to athletes like RGIII rather than those committing DUIs, bringing weapons to their stadium, or getting arrested for assault! (And how can you not admire an athlete who likes crazy socks?)

RGIII appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno earlier this week and really wowed both Leno and House's Hugh Laurie, who also was a guest on the show. The two talked about his high school days, proposing to his fiancé, and he even demonstrated another talent. I thought he was really impressive. In case you missed it, take a look at Washington's newest star:
