Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams Talks “Participation Awards”

Remember in 2015 when Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison talked about his sons’ “participation awards” and how much he did NOT like them? Well, running back DeAngelo Williams is the recent athlete to give his take on a similar situation.

Williams took to social media the other day to talk about his daughter’s participation award and how he just doesn’t believe in it.

I took her Field Day participation ribbon and gave it back to her teacher…then she went out and won 1st place in the next event ??

Whether you agree or disagree, it is always great to see athletes stand up for what they believe in and be a part of their children’s lives.

    If it were my child I would not force them to give the award back , but I would sit down with them and tell them the difference between participation and an actual winners award . They need to know the difference .
