I was reading the sports section and this article really pulled me in. As soon as I saw the title, I knew it was about former Redskins player Sean Taylor. I really like Taylor – he was one of the best safeties in the NFL. He always played his hardest. I believe that his death had nothing to do with his being from the ’hood. Sean Taylor will never be forgotten, especially by me.
