During his days with the Steelers, I didn't see too many articles that gave me an understanding of the type, and quality, of person Ziggy Hood was. I really liked him as a player coming out of college, but it seems his skill set wasn't a good fit for this team. About the only thing I knew for sure is that he is an incredibly powerful defensive lineman. Thought his recent article is a perfect post for all those dads out there.

Happy Fathers Day fellas!

Ziggy Hood wrote:
One of the hardest things to deal with is when my teammates bring their kids into the locker room to play around. You know everybody’s having a good time. All the kids are roughhousing and causing trouble, and then I’m getting questions like, “Ziggy, where’s your son at? How come you never bring him around?” I never really knew how to respond to that. What am I supposed to say, “My child has special needs and he can’t do the things that normal kids do because of I’m afraid of him getting hurt.” I play defensive tackle in the NFL — this isn’t a profession where you talk about weakness that often. But every time I saw those little boys playing and making memories, I cried a little bit on the inside.

Wow, I now have a whole new perspective on Ziggy. He didn't end up being the kind of player most of us thought he'd be, but he's an outstanding man and father.

I never had a problem with Ziggy Hood, unlike some Steeler fans. I wish him well in Jacksonville, and will wish him well with any other team he might play for in the future.

very good read. I always liked Ziggy too. He has a very wonderful looking family.
