Dashon Goldson: Leading Through PizzaAugust 7th, 2013
In a high-cholesterol moment that surely sent the Bucs’ team nutritionist into convulsions, Dashon Goldson used his fat wallet to further establish himself as a leader of the Buccaneers. Goldson surprised teammates with a pizza party at One Buc Palace last week.
“One day [Goldson] asked me what type of pizza I liked,” rookie Akeem Spence said yesterday. “I told him. Then I think after our meetings, the next thing I knew, hell, like there were 40 or 50 boxes in the lounge. I was like, ‘Man, that’s crazy. I wish I could do that, but I can’t.’
“Dashon, man, he’s a good guy; he likes to do things for people. Coach kind of laid back on us in practice that day, and [Goldson] thought it was a good idea. Some team camaraderie stuff.”
Was the pizza any good, Akeem? Domino’s?
“No. It was Pizza Hut. It was fine.”
Ahmad Black said that while the pizza was “just a small bone” Goldson threw, “we have to make that up to him both on and off the field.”
Greg Schiano has praised Goldson and Darrelle Revis for their focus on leadership, which Joe has seen extend to helping young player in the secondary after practice.
Goldson, obviously, is taking things a step further to build fast bonds.
