Meet Air Force Captain Bryce Fisher of the Seattle Seahawks. He’ll serve nine years in the reserves and already served two years active duty. Although he’s playing in Sunday’s Super Bowl XL, we like this defensive end for the things he says and does OFF the field and in the service of our country.
For instance, Fisher told USA Today this about playing pro football vs. serving in the military:
The fact is that we get to play a game for millions of dollars and get to play on national TV. The reason why is because we have brave men and women who are doing things in places that none of us would ever want to be at.
