I've said it before on this page: I love reading Rick Reilly. For years, I read Reilly's back page essay in every issue of Sports Illustrated.
Now that Reilly is at ESPN, I read the back page of ESPN The Magazine.
Take a few moments to read Reilly on John Elway, All-Pro quarterback for the Denver Broncos.
Ellway comes across in the incident Reilly describes as much more than a role model.
Elway steps up to encourage a kid, but in the process he reveals just how real he is as a person.
Great story about a great guy.
