It’s often easy to identify the superstars in sports.

After all, people talk about their accomplishments repeatedly and recognize their faces from widespread exposure in the social media era.

But what about the more unheralded players who fill roster spots and contribute to their respective teams?

Not everyone responded to the survey, but those that did provided a range of interesting and thoughtful answers.
