The American Football Player with the Heart of a Soldier

The September 11 attacks on the United States in 2001 had a great impact not only on its citizens, but people worldwide. The aftermath made many angry, scared, and feeling like life would never be the same again. Although people had different ways of dealing with the tragedy of these terrorist attacks, one professional athlete decided to give up football and enlist in the U.S. Army to serve his country.

In June 2002, Patrick Daniel “Pat” Tillman Jr. joined the Army Rangers and served several tours in combat before he was killed in the mountains of Afghanistan. Tillman had always excelled in football and was able to go to Arizona State University on a scholarship. His college career as a linebacker for ASU was successful despite being only five-feet eleven inches tall. He was voted the Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Year during his senior year, and was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2010. Tillman was also an exceptional student, graduating in three and a half years with a 3.84 GPA.

His professional football career started as a safety with the Arizona Cardinals when they selected him during the 1998 NFL Draft. He was named to the 2000 NFL All-Pro team by football writer Paul Zimmerman of Sports Illustrated after performing well in the number of tackles, sacks, forced fumbles, fumble recoveries, pass deflections, and interceptions. Tillman remained loyal to the Cardinals, turning down a five-year $9 million dollar contract from the St. Louis Rams.

What really stood out about Tillman was the fact that he turned down a contract offer of $3.6 million over three years from the Arizona Cardinals to enlist in the U.S. Army. Tillman and his brother Kevin (who gave up a possible career in professional baseball) both enlisted at the same time and completed the Ranger Indoctrination Program in 2002. The brothers were then assigned to the 2nd Ranger Battalion in Fort Lewis, Washington. After his participation in the initial invasion of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, Pat Tillman entered Ranger School at Fort Benning, Georgia, and graduated in November of the same year.

Tillman was then redeployed to Afghanistan where he served before being killed on April 22, 2004. The Army initially claimed that Tillman and his unit were attacked in an ambush by hostile forces. But after a lengthy investigation by Brigadier General Gary M. Jones and the U.S. Department of Defense, it was concluded that Tillman’s death was due to friendly fire.

Although there is much controversy surrounding the way Tillman was killed, he is remembered as being a man that was very close to his family and friends. He will also be remembered for his selfless decision to give up millions of dollars and his football career to serve his country. His mother, Marie Tillman, founded the Pat Tillman Foundation, an organization investing resources and educational scholarship support to veterans, active service members and their dependents, as a way to honor the memory and legacy of her son.
