From Mark Schremmer, Landline:
A single story can reveal a lot about a person. In the case of former NFL player Joe Dean Davenport, one anecdote may describe the personality of the person better than any other.
A tight end for the NCAA Division I University of Arkansas football team in the late 1990s, Davenport often hurried to the family farm in Tontitown, Ark., as soon as practice ended so that he could work in the hay field until dark.
“Everyone thought I was crazy, but it had to be done,” Davenport said.
