April 2012: BEN COHEN

Tackle me to the ground and give me grass stains! Now before you call timeout to work on your stamina know that there’s more to this Great Britt than meets the eye. Ben Cohen used to tumble on the field playing professional ruby in England and France, but now Ben faces different opponents.

Last May he retired to create The Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation which works to end bullying and homophobia in school sports. Not to mention, he received the MBE (Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) for his anti-bulling and LGBT advocacy. So next time you witness someone being teased, honor Ben and stand up for them. Maybe he’ll return the favor with a little unsportsmanlike conduct.
