I'm rooting for the 49'ers because I don't want to hear Ravens fans talking crap anymore then they do already.

You're bandwagoning CK and the pistol.

Oh yea, I'm rooting for Ray even though I think him and the Ravens owner are lovers at this point but I think the 49ers will win it.

Alot of my family are somehow Ravens fans. My dad and I are a few of the only Bengals fans. They used to be Browns fans but transferred with the Ravens.

A little surprising. Most Browns fans hate the Ravens because of Modell. Didn't hear about many transferring their loyalty to Baltimore.

So we're dealing with some super multi account person and Aaron Maybin is a super awesome HOF player suddenly. All in all, the Bengals board is running normal.

You wanna see what I wrote on Vincent Rey for English 102? I bet you don't

It is safe to say the occupation is not as important as the man behind it. It is everything from family, to values, to their work in his community that makes the man. That much is easily true with Vincent Rey, linebacker for the Cincinnati Bengals. As a special teams leader and valuable contributor to the team, anyone could say that made Vincent a successful person. He has even had to chance to practice and compete against the likes of an NFL legend like Peyton Manning. However, it is the philanthropy and commitment to education that made him.

As someone who had nothing but humble beginnings in his career, Vincent Rey keeps everything to that description. With only one offer from a Division 1A school, it would be easy to say Rey would not amount to much as a player coming out of high school. After his four years at the predominant basketball school Duke, he went undrafted in the 2010 NFL draft. He signed a contract afterwards to play for the Cincinnati Bengals, and was only signed to their practice squad – a place for developmental players – after he was cut before the regular season in his first year. Not many make it out of that, but Vincent has flourished since being called up from that squad to play for the team. This is quite a success story any way it can be thrown, but it is not the reason for who he is today.

As a leader of special teams on the Bengals, the coaches and players anticipate a certain level of commitment to excellence in character by Rey. He accomplished that and more when Rey was announced one of the two winners of the 2012 NFL Players Association Pulse Award for the team. The award is given out to those who do excellent work in their community, and Rey lived up to that in every way he could. He had helped created a garden at a school just to help a community that wanted extra beauty within it. Not only that, he was chosen to help represent the Bengals as a member of the United Way, which is an organization that helps individuals and families achieve their potential through education, income stability and healthy lifestyles.

As Vincent said, “I do charity because I see it as my duty to give to others. I have been very fortunate this far in my life and even though I can do everything, I know that I can do something.”

Although as cliché as it sounds, he derives inspiration from his father and Jesus Christ. Calling his father “The most consistent man that I have known” and citing how Jesus “is a great example of humility,” and “I want to be more of a humble person as the days go on,” it is clear how he derives his values from his religion and family. His father pushed schooling on him and his younger brother, giving them as much as they could with putting Vincent in a private school for a year.

His family is a strong showing of educational values, having a mother who is a guidance counselor, and a father who could not achieve everything he wanted to because of his lack of the education he drove into his son at every point he could. They would send him to the library every day after school until he reached high school. That very same high school he would take a four hour train ride to for the sole reason of its reputation for academics and athletics.

Being from Duke, an outstanding educational institution, Rey puts a large focus on that education he was fortunate to receive. Vincent has helped within education with an astounding amount of persistence. In 2012, Rey teamed up with other NFL players to go to the Capitol and attempt to find a way to help recruit a million tutors for schools around the country to help control the dropout rate as well as finding help for any other students struggling. Of course, like in his NFL career, he was not drafted into this event either. Whenever the Bengals head coach, Marin Lewis, made mention of his “Learning is Cool” foundation, Vincent was on top of Lewis to get involved. There was no one to pressure him into a decision, except for his own will.

He spends two hours a week at various schools in the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area helping students. For one hour, he talks to young men about the importance of their education, and spends another hour at a different school tutoring any student who needs it in reading or mathematics. Considering the amount of time an NFL player must put into his work when it comes to practice and studying film, this is quite a bit of dedication to something many do not put time into.

There is a certain level of proudness that comes from him seeing students and teachers he had helped out before, seeing them around any place he is at. He finds it nice to see them out of any place that could cause trouble, and seeing them act as any regular person in society. Considering he has been around the area for a relatively short period of time, it speaks to just how many students he has been able to have an impact on.

Vincent states, "Education starts within the home. The schools should be thinking of ways to stay in contact with the parents to keep them involved. Number two, kids spend more time at school than home in extracurricular activities and public schools have to find ways to make sure they have the right number of teachers and be prepared to give kids those after-school opportunities."

Hoping to end up as a teacher, principal, or athletic director after his football career, there are not many ways to further engrain the fact Vincent Rey has his love for education. He wants to reach a Master’s degree in education to continue to contribute to said love. With the values he has, it is difficult to argue his impact cannot reach even greater heights when he reaches that point in his life.

Vincent Rey should be looked at as an inspiration to all. At 6’5”, and weighing 250 pounds, Vincent may be one of the most intimidating men a person can be around. Despite his appearance as an NFL player, Rey comes as a humble, passionate, and dedicated man to fields that are too often ignored in society. Vincent even allowed a college student, whom he could have ignored without any consequence, to interview him. With his influence on students and teachers alike, his impact should be felt well after his level of fame and fortune are gone. Although his legacy as an NFL player may not be passed down for generations, his legacy as a philanthropist and teacher should be noted by the end of his career. That is, his real career, as an educator to whomever reaches out to him.
