Brian Dawkins could motivate Eeyore.
His pregame speeches made you want to run through a brick wall. His motivational speeches now are just as incredible.
He actually spoke to Phillies prospects not long ago.

So who better than the Eagles' legend to throw a free-agent pitch to Bryce Harper?
Dawkins did just that Tuesday night, tweeting at Harper about one great fit for Philadelphia.
@Bharper3407 no pressure... what say you... though it may be true that there could be some good fits out there... but GREAT fits? I can think of only ONE! Just sayin 😎 @Phillies— Brian Dawkins (@BrianDawkins) February 20, 2019
"B-Dawk" fit this city like a glove. Many believe Harper would fit very similarly as his passion, intensity, hustle and toughness jive with the Philadelphia way.
In the past, Harper has actually shared his appreciation for Philly fans.
"I love coming in here and playing in this park, being able to play in front of these fans," he said in April 2017, via Ryan Lawrence.
Dawkins knows these fans. He also knows greatness.
He sees Harper as a great fit for Philly. Pretty soon, we'll see if Harper agrees.
