New Magazine Feature Highlights Pat Tillman’s Legacy


If I could choose any recent historical figure to sit down and have an hour long exclusive interview with, it would be the late, great Pat Tillman.  He was a high-achieving intellectual in the classroom and accomplished gladiator of the gridiron. His rare combination of distinctive individual traits shattered every possible stereotype, and proved once again that the most interesting of us are those who defy classification.

I am greatly looking forward to seeing the film based on his life, and his legacy because  he was someone who shared my love of this great nation, college and NFL football, thinking deeply and critically, taking idealistic action and even the work of author Noam Chomsky. During his life he was a man whose actions worked on many levels.

That’s why I’m glad to see the Good Men Project make him the subject of a recent feature.
