Venric Mark visited #BTNLive, added to Team Room Wall

Venrick Mark


Venric Mark accounted for 281 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns, including an 82-yard punt return, in Northwestern’s 42-41 win at Syracuse last week. His reward: A cool image of himself from the game on a wall of the Northwestern team room. Mark’s picture was placed on the wall because he won Northwestern Player of the Week, and each ensuing honoree will be added every week.

Mark’s efforts also got him an interview on Wednesday’s #BTNLive. Listen to the show here:

Already a pretty cool wall, it will only get better as more images are added to it.

Mary Poppins, is a movie regarding overcoming and never giving up on your dreams. You should watch it. This claissical move doesn’t promote the violence, sex and lack of character that many of our yourng and old people enjoy today.

Maybe this is why it seemed so amazing that a gifted well development young man (Venric Mark), would enjoy such a movie.

The unfortuante is that among our modern day sports world, hard and brass seems to be the way it rolls, however such attributes as a place and only a place.

In regards to Venric two (2) kick punts returns a game while a St.Pius it is true. A wise person once said to me “Know the truth and or facts before drawing a conclusion, that could possible save you embrassement”.

Humility and character based on individual discipline and self-control are only among the few prizes our young people of today need. As well as stable, grounded mentors and professionals who have been there. Am sure BTN shares these views, at least I hope so.
