NFL Player Doesn't Let Daughter Keep Participation Ribbon
Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams is not a fan of participation ribbons.
Williams posted on Twitter Wednesday that his daughter Rhiya received a participation ribbon at her school's field day.
The 2009 Pro Bowler wasn't satisfied with her being rewarded for participating in a competition, so he returned the ribbon to her teacher.
So what happened next?
Williams says Rhiya finished in first place in her next event.
He posted a photo that shows the little girl smiling with three ribbons - one for first place, two for third place - pinned to her T-shirt.

He's not the first Steeler to take such action. Linebacker James Harrison took to social media last year to rail against the "participation" trophies given to his sons.
