The University of Maryland gave star basketball player Tamir Goodman an ultimatum: play on Shabbos or you’re out.
An orthodox Jew, Tamir didn’t have to think twice. He gave back a full, four-year athletic scholarship to the school that played host to the top-ranked basketball team in the nation. But let him tell you the story in his own words.
Tamir Goodman is aptly (sur)named. At least in my book.
Actually, Tamir Goodman reminds me of another principled athlete (you saw this coming a mile away).
