Gio Gives Back
#1
Pretty cool story regarding Gio's foundation and his efforts in his home land of Haiti.

http://www.bengals.com/news/article-1/Bengals-Give-Back-Bernards-School-in-Haiti/43779345-fc61-4abc-8d7e-68028ceef616

How about a little Gio feature on this the week leading up to the Super Bowl when the Bengals prepare to beat the Vikings? See, NFL? There can be good stories from Cincinnati.

I remember reading an article a few years back, when all of this was still a dream for Gio. It's fantastic that his plans have come to fruition.

I remember seeing Gio as a rookie on Hard Knocks. You could just sense his humble spirit and loving character. I am honored to have this guy in Cincinnati.

Gio is the real deal - both as a player and as a person.   LOVED this story.   Wish there could be a lot more like it.

Here's to you Gio!  God bless you Sir!

Remember when Hue was busting his balls for driving his girlfriend's mother's used Minivan?  Gio was probably the only second rounder that drove a used minivan.

I do and Gio grinned slightly and let it roll off his shoulder. Good kid.

Don't blow it on shiny new things that quickly lose value.

I remember watching Gio on Hard Knocks show and thought he was a classy individual. I think it was he that yelled out the window of his apartment "Who-Dey!" I hope he as a good year.

I completely agree, but I also know that most NFL Rookies, especially those drafted fairly early, don't often have that mindset. I love everything about this kid and can't wait to see how he does next season with the improved line and blocking scheme.  I hope he becomes more of a fixture as a receiver as well.
