I entered into the NFL as a young free agent linebacker sporting jersey #59 for various high profile teams such as the New Orleans Saints, Houston Texans, and Jacksonville Jaguars.

Without warning, my football career suddenly ended after suffering from a paralyzing spinal contusion which initially left me concerned about how to transition into a future of unknown possibilities that didn’t seem to fit into my label of being a professional athlete.
