AFC Profiles

Although Steelers’ linebacker Jarvis Jones is no longer playing for the University of Georgia, this ESPN profile reveals the obstacles Jones went through just to get an opportunity to play football again.  It’s a great story to a year later because it shows how hard he worked and overcame adversity to get drafted 17th overall in last year’s draft.

Another great, inspirational profile is on Titan’s Tommie Campbell.  It was a great read about how he struggled in academics and let his dreams of playing in the NFL slip away but got back on his feet after being a janitor to support his two children.
