    Charles Tillman of the Chicago Bears speaks to reporters Friday April 11, 2014 after the dedication of a street in his name in Copperas Cove.

    COPPERAS COVE — The Economic Development Corporation dedicated Charles Tillman Way on Friday in honor of the Chicago Bears cornerback and former Copperas Cove Bulldawgs standout.

    “I don’t think I am deserving of a road, but I will take it,” Tillman told the crowd.

    A two-time Pro Bowler, Tillman holds the Bears’ team records for defensive touchdowns and interception-return touchdowns. In 2013, he received the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award.

    In high school, he helped Cove end a 40-year football playoff drought.

    Tillman is an inspiration on and off the field, said Jack Welch, Copperas Cove Independent School District athletic director.

    He affects the lives of about a half-million people a year through the Charles Tillman Cornerstone Foundation, which provides opportunities and resources to children and families in need, said Col. Glenn Gildon, commander of the Fort Hood Mobilization Brigade, during the dedication ceremony.

    Gildon said Charles Tillman Way also will have an effect on people’s lives as it will lead to a future primary-employer hub for the city.

    “Cove is growing,” Tillman said. “Cove is definitely on the up and coming. ... Hopefully Charles Tillman Way can change lives.”

    Bears fans were among those who watched the corporation’s vice chairwoman, Bradi Diaz, hand Tillman a street sign bearing his name.

    “My husband is a huge fan of Charles,” said Celisse Moyer, as she clenched her husband’s favorite Tillman jersey, which Tillman signed. Gabriel Moyer, a soldier, is currently deployed.

    “He is going to be so excited,” Celisse Moyer said.

    Kim Miller, another Tillman fan, said it was fitting for the city to name a street after the NFL player.

    “It is awesome,” Miller said. “He has done so much. He is a good person and just remembers the military and the community where he came from.”

    Upon completion, Charles Tillman Way will lead to one entrance into the 72-acre Narrows Business and Technology Park and will connect Robert Griffin III Boulevard to Constitution Drive.

    Dammit.



    Feel good article....making me feel good and then.......they bring you crashing back down to earth because they've already given RG3 a street. Isn't that like giving Obama a Nobel Peace Prize before he's even taken office???

    Meaningless.

    While Walter Payton is my favorite Bear, Peanut is coming ever so close to his status in my book.

    I don't think there is ONE single bad thing posted about him. He is having a huge impact off the field as well.

    I'm am glad they kept him this year. If the front office should be loyal to anyone, it's Tillman.

    Correct, and he should have had a street named after him in Copperas Cove before RG3.

    Yeah but the NFL never got it's cut on those. LOL

    I think we should call Charles Tillman Way to "Peanut's Parkway". Oh and by the way Copperas Cove EDC. RG III gets his own "Boulevard" but all Peanut gets is a "Way". Lame guys, really busted ass lame. :23 30 110v[1]::jimmipost:

    And last but not least...

    [​IMG]

    Residents of 'Butt Hole Road' club together to change the street's unfortunate name. The constant jokes were just too much to take for the long-suffering residents of Butt Hole Road, a street named after a communal water butt that was originally in the area. So despairing households in the suburban street in Conisbrough, South Yorkshire, decided that the road's name simply had to change. The road was renamed Archers Way to refer to a medieval castle that is just half a mile away. (Source)

    Just going to the club honey to "hang out" LOL
