Chuck Pagano Is an Inspiration and Other AFC South Must-Reads
Posted By Nate Dunlevy On December 20, 2012 @ 8:01 am In Colts News | No Comments
By now, everyone knows the incredible story of Chuck Pagano , but it doesn’t hurt to hear it again.
Today’s article of the day comes from Wayne Drehs of ESPN.com , who says Pagano has inspired a city.
This must-read piece is a tear-jerker that summarizes Pagano’s battle and the special way he’s used his hardship to bless and encourage others.
The football angle to this story is an afterthought except that it’s football that made Pagano famous. Fame has no value except when it can be used as a force for good, however, and to that end it has served the coach well.
The Colts’ miracle run to the playoffs has been a terrific story, but the only eternal value it carries derives from the hope it gives. That hope is directly tied to Pagano, who has become the face of victory in the throes of an insidious illness.
