Patrick Kane certainly is not the first high-profile young pro athlete to stretch the limits of team rules and acceptable conduct away from the field.

The Chicago Blackhawks all-star was the recent subject of photos showing him apparently partying excessively in Madison, Wis.

Paul Hornung, a Pro Football Hall of Fame halfback and Heisman Trophy winner at Notre Dame, knows about the temptations and pitfalls off the field for a young star athlete.

"You've just got to be careful that you don't get into any trouble," Hornung said Monday in an interview with the Tribune. "So many of these kids carry knives and guns and all that kind of stuff today that it is kind of frightening. Those kind of actions are just a complete no-no. You just can't be in the wrong spot at the wrong time."
