    This kid is a diamond in the rough ! He has the talent to play in the NFL but what really stands out is his compassion . He is the brand of a pro athlete . Never thinks of himself as the man which makes him a great team player . Off the field his actions speak for themselves . He loves the youth that look up to him and has reached out to kids down and out in the ER to lift their spirits ! Comes from football city USA Rock Hill SC !
