On this day in 1999, the world lost the greatest professional football player of all time, and one of the greatest men to ever walk the earth. Football was what Walter Payton did for a living, and it gave him a platform to communicate who he was as a person to the rest of the world.
If you do some digging around, it won't take long to find out from people that knew him (coaches, teammates, friends, family members) who Walter Payton really was, and how much of an impact he made on people's lives. He was, above anything else, a beautiful human being.
Today, we honor his memory. Thank you, Walter, for being who you were, and for giving so much of yourself to the world. We are honored to have been able to witness your impact, and will always cherish our memories.
