From Pittsburgh’s KDKA:

James Harrison is not a fan of participation trophies.

The Steelers linebacker had a lot to say on an Instagram post Saturday, after posting a picture of two participation trophies his sons had received.

Harrison went on to say he’s sending back the trophies until “they earn a real trophy.”

“While I am very proud of my boys for everything they do and will encourage them till the day I die, these trophies will be given back until they EARN a real trophy.
