I heard an interview today with a soon to be graduate of our states best university who is predicted to be a first round pick in the NFL draft.
I can't remember all the quotes but here are just a few of my favorites:
"If I'ze don't succeed, I won't make no excuses."
I'ze look forward to playing in the NFL."
I'ze been working on my feetwork so I can play multiple positions on defense."
I wish him nothing but the best and I hope he does succeed.
Last year, only 1.7% of college football players made it to the pros.
Hopefully a lot of the others are taking advantage of everything a great university can offer, including English and public speaking courses.
