Robert Golden - Professional Football Player (Pittsburgh Steelers)

"It was an honor for me to be able to speak at Keeping Youth Journey Onward meeting for becoming a man. The material that was being taught in Becoming A Man not only will benefit the kids and their success onward, but it also sharpen my sword to continue to stand tall in my manly walk"  -Robert Golden

Robert Golden spoke at the Becoming A Man program for young men with a theme of decision making and the importance of hard work. He shared personal life decisions and events that shaped his path to success. He taught from his own experience that making poor choices, especially when hanging with the wrong crowds, will inevitably cause hardship, get you in to trouble, and threaten high achievement.  With his hard work and dedication he was able to overcome those setbacks and make it to the NFL.

Unique to many individuals whose lives are dedicated to sports, Golden loves making the time to mentor children and give back to the community. His local heritage lends a familiarity and insight in to the daily lives of the youth at KYJO that attend the same public schools, strive to keep good grades, and excel in a sport or academic goal of their choice.

Golden graduated right here in Fresno from Edison High School in 2008. Some say he could be one of the best Defensive Backs to come out of the school. After a few years playing for the Arizona State Wildcats, Golden signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers in April 2012.

 KYJO would like to give a big thank you to Robert Golden for taking his time to share his life experiences with the kids in the program.

Sean and Rush aren't especially smart. I am more of an "America first" kind of pesron.And remember, there used to be conservative democrats. What happened to them?All those violent acts that you blame on the likes of idiots like Bush aren't all belonging to the "right" as you think. Lenin and Mao had no problem with offing people that got in their way. FDR imprisoned Americans (specifically Japanese-Americans) at the start of WWII. I don't think anyone would call FDR "right". What about LBJ? "Hey..hey...LBJ, how many kids did you kill to-day?"Obama is certainly extreme left simply because he thinks government is the answer to everything. That, all by itself, is un-American. I wouldn't expect a community organiser to have much of a clue about business or specifically small-business. Hardcore Republicans and Democrats do not have the best interests of America as their reason to exist. Neo-cons and neo-liberals are dangerous to the Constitution and Bill of Rights. As for man-made global warming. That video hits it right on the mark. Unfortunate for those religious-faith-based-types that want to soak the taxpayer simply because they hate capitalism. When the Soviet Union fell, neo-socialists needed a new movement to push their cancer. They found it by hijacking the green movement.And, one can be for good environmental regulation and still not believe in theft on the taxpayer acts like the carbon tax.
