Athletes from across the sports landscape, and the leagues that they play for, took to social media to send their Father’s Day wishes on Sunday.
With athletes from the major sports at home for the offseason or in the early stages of preparing for their upcoming seasons, many took the time to write messages about their loved ones.
Those wishes including a touching message from Houston Texans defensive end Devon Still, whose daughter, Leah, beat cancer this year.
When I first let people follow our journey and everyone started to call me "best dad ever" or a "hero" I really struggled with those titles. I didn't want to get put on a pedestal for just doing what I'm suppose to do as a dad. I later realized that in the eyes of my daughter I am "the best dad ever" and her "hero" because I don't let a day go by without letting her know how much I love her and I will never leave her side! So today, I want to wish a Happy Father's Day to all the "HEROS" out there because to our kids we are just that!
Happy Fathers Day fellas!!! ✊🏾— Chris Paul (@CP3) June 19, 2016
