If you wanted a real life example of success, you would need to look no further than Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Qadry Ismail. In high school he earned All American honors from Track and Field News, went on to college to become one of eight players in NCAA history with over 2,000 career kickoff return yards, and was drafted into the NFL as the “go-to” wide receiver with the Baltimore Ravens’ Super Bowl championship. By society’s standards, Qadry is the epitome of achievement. But if you ask him what he measures success by, it would be his role as a husband and a father: “Getting married was the significant experience for me,” says Qadry. “I couldn’t be a half-hearted husband.” Keeping up with his 3 children has also been quite a task for this speedster. “I adore my kids. They are truly gifts from God and I desire to be the best dad I can be.” Qadry is heavily involved in children’s lives throughout his community, having worked with D.A.R.E and spoken at schools encouraging children to maintain high standards for themselves. But Qadry’s main time commitment is his family. And while catching passes in the Super Bowl is thrilling, nothing compares to being a loving husband and devoted father.
