Former Colts running back Edgerrin James, center, is seen in portrait with his sons, Edgerrin, Jr. a.k.a. "Jizzleman," 8, right clockwise, Euro, 6, and Eden, 9, July 24, 2013 at the Edgerrin James Youth Summer Camp in Orlando, Fla. Edgerrin is arguably the best football player to emerge from Southwest Florida proving decorated careers at Immokalee High School, The University of Miami and Indianapolis Colts. He is eligible for the National Football League's Hall of Fame in 2015. "I'm just glad they picked me (to the Colts Hall of Fame), it's just like everything else, you just go out and do whatever you're doing and be happy you've been acknowledged. Hopefully I represented what it means to be a football player and go out and play the position I played,"Edgerrin said. About his upcoming kids who also play football and other sports, "I tell them do everything the right way there is no shortcuts, there's no handouts…work real hard and the results will show. Hard work is hard to hide."
