Yah it is.. Kinda.. It's mostly about how he grew up in a bad situation.. But I do think they were poor as well..

Yah basically.. Except alot of them didn't have something wrong with them that they had to stay in bed for 2 months.. And alot didn't have a brother die and only have a godfather to look to..

But after he cryed when he got drafted by us I thought that we pretty cool

man, they didn't show much coverage of him on draft day, you know the kid is happy hes drafted by you when hes crying, but then again benson was crying and he is still unsigned i believe

I can't wait to see the late sportscenter tonight to see the story. I agree natethegreat, I don't remember seeing much coverage of him at the draft either, and it's not just cuz I was drunk either!! lol

Sorry u don't like rags to riches stories, especially when i think of how bad it could be. I may not be makin the big bucks TW is, but i can appreciate any story that shows what a person has overcome. My life isn't perfect, but i know i never had it half as bad as he did. Count ur blessings, especially in Wisconsin, that tornado could have landed in your town instead.

Nice post Justin...................so what if someone is sick of another rags to riches story................my biggest concern is I wish there were more stories like that instead of less. Many people in bad circumstances choose the easiest (and possibly wrong) way out. Now there's a common story I'm sick of.

I missed it. What did it say about him, like just how he grew up or what?

I watched it and it was good. He does need to bulk up though.

they talked about him getting caught on fire and how his brother stole a car and then crashed it and got killed, and then he moved in with this guy from his church who i think is his godfather, just his whole life basicly it was a preety good piece

i think his situation he has had growing up will give him a good heart and he'll want to do better than the most players.
