NFL quarterback blasts school for nixing valedictorian: 'If you want something bad enough, work for it. People are too soft.'

“This is so dumb,” Mayfield noted in a tweet that’s going viral. “You’re telling me competition doesn’t bring out the best in people? If you want something bad enough, work for it. People are too soft.”

 

Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield — who lit up the league in his rookie season last year, throwing for 3,725 yards and 27 touchdowns — had a few words for an Ohio high school that did away with its valedictorian and salutatorian awards due to concerns about students’ mental health and the school’s “competitive culture.”

It was among several changes Mason City Schools announced last week, including capping grade point averages at 5.0, the Enquirer said, adding that the latter was needed because students have been pursuing higher and higher GPAs instead of other endeavors.

“Kids were using their summers, using time during the year to stack themselves up with even more classes,” Tracey Carson, a district spokeswoman, told the paper.

 

Mayfield won the Heisman Trophy in 2017, becoming the only walk-on player to ever win the premier college football award. Mayfield then became the 2018 NFL draft’s No. 1 overall pick and was headed to the Browns. He went on the break the NFL rookie record with his 27th touchdown pass last December, having started only 13 games.

THE GOOD NEWS

SALVATION

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.

  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
