I have never been so humbled and honored to feature Patrick Sapp as one of the dads in #ManUPstate’s #BeADad campaign. It seems like yesterday I was working for Clemson Football in the video department and Patrick was a young, rising quarterback for the Tigers. He could throw the football a mile and defenses had a hard time taking him down because of his size.
I have been thinking about Nigel’s #BeADad story this week, a story of a committed working father and husband. His story has taught me so much about the intentionality of being a dad, the consistent commitment to being “present”.
Had a great time hanging out with Patrick Sapp, his son, and all their friends playing football at Caine Halter #YMCA. It was fun to watch a dad be a good dad! #BeADad #ManUPstate
Being a dad is tough…really tough. I have been in the middle of a wonderful campaign interviewing, capturing images of great dads and I am humbled. Each dad I capture…each man I interview…each image showcasing a dad and their children…I am reminded of my struggles.
I am at that age when many of my friends are starting to get divorced and it not only breaks my heart but it makes me even more disillusioned about my ability to break the cycle.
Fatherhood is something that I am learning more and more about each day! Clayton Kale of @ymcagvl has an amazing relationship with his daughter and allowed us to capture his story and his perspective of fatherhood; specifically what it means to be a good man!
