Growing up in the inner city of Miami has presented me with many obstacles to overcome. No matter how bleak things might have looked or what odds might have been stacked against me, I never stop fighting for what I want. I went from a college walk-on at Morris Brown College to a scholarship student-athlete at Georgia Tech. It was imperative for me to display my athletic abilities on a larger platform. This mindset has pushed me to chase my dream over 3 continents by way of the CFL, NFL Europe and finally the NFL. I took that same approach to my education when I gave up a $50,000 work-out bonus to return to Georgia Tech and earn my undergraduate degree in Business. I was presented with an award from the NFL because of my scholastic achievements. As an undrafted player in the NFL I’ve seen my fair share of highs and lows in my 10 year career. The knowledge gained on and off the field has led to my continued work as a Sports Analyst. I can recreate the passion I had on the field as an analyst to help undrafted players find success in the NFL. Maintaining the proper attitude with perseverance has allowed me to continue my pursuit for perfection as I embark on what is sure to be a great 2nd career.
I continue to use my celebrity to bring awareness to outside causes and community organizations. This allows me to mentor future leaders of tomorrow, aspiring athletes and help troubled youth. Nothing is better than knowing that you’ve had a major impact on someone else’s life.
