About this Quote

In this quote, Dante Hall is acknowledging the truth that professional athletes are often seen as role models by society. Nevertheless, he thinks that the real role models need to be moms and dads and instructors. Hall recommends that professional athletes might just be considered excellent role models due to the fact that they are admired and looked up to by others, and therefore have the capability to favorably influence their audience. Nevertheless, he thinks that the responsibility of being a good example should eventually fall on moms and dads and teachers, as they have a more direct and substantial effect on the development and character of people. Hall's statement highlights the significance of having strong and favorable role models in our lives.
