Mr. Mike is a noon time aid here at the Jackson School, and needless to say, he is quite the champion of play. I call him “Big Mike.” Firstly because he towers over myself and all of the children here at Jackson. But more importantly, because he has one of the biggest hearts and greatest capacity for fun, respect, and the overall love of games. Having him outside with me each day at recess is such a blessing, in that he lends a helping hand to me and any child during play time, and that he, like me, feels blessed for the jobs we have, as professional players. Mike is quite the role model to the children here at Andrew Jackson, but also to me, as a fellow game lover. Which is why, Big Mike is the Champion of Play.
