I lost friends to the prison system or to street violence. The main reason I got to college was sports, so I want to start a nonprofit to help high school athletes. It would be academically based with sports as the driving force. I’ll use what those guys know and love to change their lives.
I told Greg Harden I wanted to start a nonprofit to help high school athletes. Greg said, ‘That’s social work. It’s a perfect fit for you!
My family couldn’t afford the tuition, so I was dependent on loans and scholarships. I was fortunate enough to have people give me a hand to make a difference in the world—at the number one school.
