While at the University of Mississippi, Cooper was diagnosed with spinal stenosis. This ended cooper's dreams of playing football and had a big impact on the family. Peyton used this to ensure he’d make it for his brother. He eventually did and is now one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. This determination and activity in the communities around him is why Peyton Manning is an amazing role model and someone to look up to. This is why I picked him as my second person. Peyton is a prime example of what a leader and a good person looks

History furnishes few examples of daring and adventure comparable to those of the fur trappers and hunters of the Great West. Jedediah Strong Smith was a was a clerk, frontiersman, hunter, trapper, author, cartographer, and explorer. Known for his great contributions for travel, he and his fellow trappers were the forerunners of advancing civilization in the West. They explored the regions west of the Mississippi, from the confines of the Arctic ocean in the North to the borders of Mexico in the South. All without government protection, they traversed through perilous mountain ranges filled with savage foes. Canoed over uncharted waters, and only narrowly escaped. Jedediah’s adventures were often never recorded, and credit was given to those men years after the trail was discovered. Jedediah is the real mountain man we all owe credit to.

One of my biggest role models that I try to imitate is the crazy and funny, Mike Iaconelli. Mike Iaconelli known as “ike” is a big hit in professional fishing that sticks out more than any other fisherman there is out there. He’s a one hilarious man on and off TV. He is that type of person that actually loves what he does and tries his best at every tournament, even when he does his simple practices for the tournament that coming up. Ike is one of the main factors that draw in angler to try to become professional or even elite. When ike catches a fish he doesn’t just sit there and say “yeah I caught one finally”, no no no, he’s yelling at the top of his lungs “YEAAAHHHH”.

Robert Adam (1728–92) was one of the most important British architects working in the Neo-classical style and was a main force in the development of a unified style that extended beyond architecture and interiors to include both the fixed and moveable objects in a room.
