Last year, Whitelaw Reid of UVA Today wrote a special profile on a special student-athlete, Charles Snowden. In honor of Snowden being named the ACC Linebacker of the Week, they re-ran the story. The lede alone should draw you in…

“From eating a particular food, to listening to a favorite song, to wearing a certain piece of clothing, to walking onto the playing field in a very specific way, to, well, just about anything you can think of, actually, athletes are known to have their pregame rituals. Often times, these rituals don’t have a whole lot of meaning to anybody other than the athlete performing them. That’s what makes Charles Snowden’s routine so special. His ritual involves children, kindness and, on occasion, a superhero’s costume.” Read the full story here.
