Top pick: Class act

In today's sports world, everyone wants to write about the negative. That being said, my brother has put on a memorial golf outing to continue my dad's legacy for six years now.

This year, he decided to have a Steeler come to sign autographs and meet people. The original Steeler guest had to cancel and first-round draft pick Jarvis Jones stepped up to the plate to replace him.

Let me tell you that Jones was the most polite, well-mannered young man that I've met in a long time. He played with my kids, talked to everyone about anything and, most of all, had fun with his time at the event.

Sometimes in today's society, there are not many things publicized about the good that these athletes do. However, this young man is not only going to be a factor on the field as No. 95, but he is going to be a class act in Steeler Nation!

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
