Mark your calendars. April 19 is D-Ware Day. On Wednesday, former Denver Broncos linebacker DeMarcus Ware was honored in his home state of Alabama. He posted pictures from the event on his Twitter.

Not only was Ware a great football player, he was a great motivator. He strived to make an impact not only in games, not only on his teammates, but also in the community. His message seems to indicate that he is still trying to do the latter.
Prior to terrorizing quarterbacks in the NFL, Ware was a star linebacker and wide receiver for Auburn High School in Auburn, Ala. He then attended Troy University in Troy, Ala. Ware would go on to play 12 seasons in the NFL with the Dallas Cowboys and Broncos, winning Super Bowl 50.
