Once again proving there really is almost nothing he cannot do, Stanford’s Heisman Trophy finalist Christian McCaffrey took to Twitter late Wednesday night to offer his sage advice for the younger generation out there. To sum it up briefly, McCaffrey wants kids to put their phones down and go out to enjoy all life has to offer.
“Enjoy the authenticity of this world, McCaffrey said on his Twitter account. “Read a book, ride your bike, go to the park, play in the backyard, or build a fort. Do something with your friends that will spur your imagination.”
McCaffrey did not lose sight of the irony in posting a message like this by using his phone, but insisted it was necessary to share his message.
“I know it’s ironic I’m writing this on a phone but I feel like this message needs to be heard,” McCaffrey added. “Enjoy this world and the people in it, especially around your family and friends, because I promise you it’s way better to experience the world face to face.”
Those are some inspiring words from one of college football’s best players, but then again, what would you expect from a Stanford-educated soul?
