Andre Dawson inducted into MLB Hall of Fame

Andre Dawson, one of only three players ever to hit 400 homers and steal 300 bases, was inducted Sunday into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.

Andre ” The Hawk ” Dawson had 438 homers, 2774 hits, 1591 RBIs, and 314 stolen bases in his 21 year major league baseball career from 1976-96.

Centerfielder Dawson was an 8 time All Star with 8 Gold Glove awards and was also the NL Rookie of the Year in 1977 with the Montreal Expos.

The newly elected Hall of Famer cautioned young players not to be lured to the dark side of using performance enhancing drugs.

“ It’s an honor beyond words. I didn’t play this game with this goal in mind – but I’m living proof that if you love this game – the game will love you back. I am proof that any young person who can hear my voice right now can be standing here as I am.” – Andre Dawson

Don “Air” Coryell maverick NFL Football Coach Dead at 85

Don “Air” Coryell the maverick NFL coach and innovator of the modern day passing game is Dead at 85. Outsiders saw him as a very intense, focused offensive genius coach. But Coryell’s players say he liked to laugh and have fun and wanted his players to be happy. 

Known for his high-flying ” Air Coryell ” aerial passing attack, Coryell tried things that those before him never had. He spread the field with multiple-receiver sets, attacked defenses vertically and essentially created the “H-back” position, a hybrid fullback/tight end.

Super Bowl champion coaching wizards Bill Walsh and Mike Martz  used the Coryell blueprint to form their own offensive schemes, strategy and tactics.

A rarity, Coryell actually cared about his players. Legend Don Coryell, who put team and family above all else, will be inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 2011.
