Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison has built a reputation as one of the NFL's hardest workers. After going undrafted in 2002 and getting cut numerous times early in his career, Harrison went on to become one of the most intimidating defenders in the league. 

In other words, nothing has come easy for the man nicknamed "Silverback." As one might understand, Harrison was rather irked when his sons came home with two awards that are essentially participation trophies. Harrison took to Facebook and announced he will be returning the trophies.
