Human Factor: For budding NFL player, hope after tragedy

It is a blessing to be able to share my story with the world, because based on what happened to me, no one would have thought I would have made it. I am so thankful that I have my life after such a freak car accident.

This accident was the biggest life changing moment I have ever faced. Each and every day I thank God for saving me. I do not look at my accident as the most terrible thing in the world, but I think of it as my testimony for myself and others. You will always have ups and downs, but when you feel like life has just completely run over you, you have to work your hardest to prove your mind wrong.
