Sacrifice in sports??

http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/basketball/blog/the_dagger/post/How-Jarvis-Varnado-became-the-nation-s-best-walk?urn=ncaab,183885

Jarvis Varnado of Mississippi State, like many other athletes, has sacrificed thousands of hours to become one of the best college basketball players today (most likely he will be on the All-SEC team this coming year). Jarvis, unlike many athletes, has recently sacrificed his full-ride college scholarship in order for a teammate to keep his. This is a rarer form of sacrifice that deserves notice.

Thank you Jarvis for modeling more than athleticism; thank you for modeling character.
