Well, this is just all kinds of great: This year, Arizona State dedicated its football stadium's tunnel to former Sun Devil defensive back Pat Tillman as a long-deserved way to honor the man, who gave up a career in the NFL to serve—and die—in Afghanistan. The officially named "Pat Tillman Tunnel" should also serve as an unreal inspiration to current Arizona State players. As you can see from the picture above, the Sun Devils will literally line up behind his image before taking the field each game.
Also, if you just vaguely know the Tillman story, I highly recommend John Krakauer's Where Win Men Glory. Tillman was a much more complex guy than the media ever made him out to be, but I almost guarantee you'll come away from the book with a new life role model.
