No matter what sport you follow, it’s safe to say that any athlete that spends their whole career with one team and a successful team at that, must have something about them. Athletes and ones with such success can often have all the trappings that go with it, from entourages to egos and arrogance.
When I met David Diehl for this interview he introduced himself with an outstretched hand the size of a shovel and said, “Hi, I’m David, how are you?” A man of his stature does not need to introduce himself and yet he did so because he doesn’t assume the world knows him or his successes and because he holds onto the values he has lived with his whole career. This interaction only confirmed so much of what I have read and heard about him on and off the field.
