The Good and the Bad of the XFL
Everywhere you go, there are good people and bad people. Those who try to make people's lives better and those who just seem to cause problems. The Heroes and the Zeroes. Here's a look at the Heroes and Zeros of the XFL.
Kory Blackwell is a starting cornerback with the Las Vegas Outlaws. His combination of speed, athleticism and instincts make him one of the toughest defenders in the XFL. Kory not only makes life easier for his fellow Outlaws - he also tries to make life better for everyone he's around, especially kids.
When he's not slamming Hitmen or Enforcers to the ground on the football field, Kory works as a counselor for kids. "I try to teach and help out kids as much as I can. I think its great when kids can keep their energy focused and on track. Then they at least have a chance at being successful and having a good life," says Kory.
Kory has been working since he was a kid. He got his first job when he was nine - acting in a television commercial with Dallas Cowboys running back Hershel Walker. "I never saw him again, after we did the ad. But I'd like to see him again to see his face when he finds out I'm a pro-football player too."
For knocking receivers on their butt, and helping kids get ahead - Kory Blackwell is a Kidzworld Hero.
The biggest zeroes from the XFL have to be a group of crazy fans from the LA Xtreme. During a game against Chicago, fans tossed a 46-year old paraplegic from his wheel chair on to a concrete floor six feet below. They just left poor Albert Trevino sitting in a pool of blood and beer. Everyone likes to have fun and be loud at football games - but there's no reason to hurt others. Albert needed a few stitches but was, otherwise, okay. He's a good guy who coaches Little League. But those idiot fans are big time Zeroes.
Is there someone who you think should be a Hero or a Zero?
It could be someone you heard about, your coach or even your best friend - your Heroes and Zeros.
