Brian Dawkins schools Phillies prospects on how to handle boos

Brian Dawkins schools Phillies prospects on how to handle boos

A group of Phillies prospects was in town this week for the organization’s annual prospects education seminar.

One of those lessons came from a legend.

Brian Dawkins, the most motivational athlete this city has ever seen, shared with the group his thoughts on playing in Philadelphia and responding to the passionate fan base.

“Playing in Philadelphia is different,” Dawkins said. “If you get on the field, there is a 99.99 percent chance you will be booed. The thing I always knew though was that you may boo me that one time but I’m not gonna make the same mistake again.”

The group included Alec Bohm, the Phillies’ top offensive prospect, and Cristopher Sanchez, a pitching prospect with a 100 mph arm profiled here by Jim Salisbury.

Brian Dawkins lists incredible seven-bedroom mansion for sale

Brian Dawkins lists incredible seven-bedroom mansion for sale

Brian Dawkins is moving and the Hall of Famer has listed his home on the open market for sale. If you’ve got a spare $2 million and enjoy high altitudes, this beautiful home could be yours.

When Dawkins left the Eagles after the 2008 season and signed a five-year deal with the Denver Broncos, he purchased this awesome, rustic, seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom mansion for $1.3 million in Parker, Colorado, which is about an hour south of Denver.

The house features some pretty incredible views of the Rocky Mountains as well as intricate stone work throughout. The basement looks like one of the nicer areas of the home with an incredible bar for entertaining and a double-level theater, complete with “Now Showing” marquee.

The house has a vast four-car garage, and you don’t walk around looking like Dawkins does without a huge gym, which is located above the garage. If you lose every sock you own, this place has four different laundry areas to clean all the clothes you can store in one of the two massive walk-in closets.

Here are some photos of the place, from the listing page.

Dawkins, originally from Jacksonville, Florida, also owned a home in Orlando, which he bought the land in 2003, had the house built in 2004 and sold to another guy who looks destined to end up in Canton — Charles Woodson, in 2011.

We’re not sure where B-Dawk has moved to from here, but we hope retirement is treating this Eagle legend and all-around good guy well.

Brian Dawkins and Wawa team up to make special 'Dawk' hoagie

Brian Dawkins and Wawa team up to make special 'Dawk' hoagie

The worlds of Wawa and Brian Dawkins are colliding and we’ve got a serious case of FOMO.

On April 16, Wawa will open the doors on a brand new store located in Jacksonville, Florida with the help of Weapon X himself, who will have his very own Wawa hoagie named after him in his hometown.

Known as the “Dawk”, the hoagie is built on a wheat roll with grilled chicken, Parmesan cheese, spinach, tomato, pickles, sweet peppers and yellow mustard. It sounds like the kind of food that would make you want to get a sack, interception, forced fumble and catch a touchdown pass in the same game.

Unfortunately for Philadelphians, the hoagie is only available from April 16 through June 2 at Wawa locations in Jacksonville, however, we can’t be too mad since it’s for a great cause and you can literally build your own at a Wawa near you since you know what’s in it.

Wawa will donate a portion of the proceeds from hoagie sales, up to $20,000, to benefit JaxPAL’s MobilePAL program, which benefits children in the community.

In addition to making the very first of his hoagie creation, Dawkins will be at the store, located at 2500 Monument Road in Jacksonville, to greet fans, give away free coffee and hand out prizes, including signed photos for the first 100 customers and a signed football to one lucky winner.

Color us jealous, but with Dawkins and Nick Foles headed to Jacksonville, it seems like a nice second home for Eagles fans.

If you’re in the area, doors open at 8 a.m. on Tuesday and we’ll give bonus points to anyone who crawls in like you’re coming out of the tunnel at Lincoln Financial Field.
