    Is that a serious question? Some people fall victim to their atmosphere, some are able to break away from it. How old is she again? Is it out of this world to think that a number of variables could have occurred? Like he didn't develop a drug addiction until after she had direction? Or maybe the idea that their are plenty of broken homes with broken children and sometimes their is one that is able to overcome that adversity on their own?

He could have decided to work hard and make a success of his life too but he choose to not go to school and be a dropout instead. It sounds to me like any "adversity" he faced was due to his own choices and laziness. That isn't something to applaud, imo. He couldn't even get himself to school for his finals in order to be eligible. That's lame and just plain lazy and irresponsible.

    Now this lazy, irresponsible guy is becoming a millionaire and you guys think it is such a great story. Now if he had to struggle and he worked hard for what he got than I would agree with you but to me it seems it was everyone else around him who did the heavy lifting and without them he never would have even made it through high school.

    To imply Sylvester Williams didn't grow up in an environment that exacerbates those issues and imply he had a adequate guidance and support system is to be a little in the dark. It's very very easy to fall into a habit of being a product of your environment, but old habits die hard and it's hard to break bad habits and come out a better man. Kids are young and dumb and certain situations exacerbate that

    It's kind of similar to the story Derek Wolfe has. The FO loves players that have had to overcome adversity in their life.

    The players that have to fight adversity to get there, are the ones that want to be there, and appreciate the opportunity to be in their position.

    Not sure if anyone got a chance to watch this video.

    He's done a lot of growing up lately.

    This really eases some of my concerns. This kid has an awesome work ethic from the sounds of it.

    This is the kind of kid we need. He knows what happens when you don't work hard. He found it within himself to become a hard worker, and look where he's at in such a short time. To me that says he has very high potential, and the motivation to work for it. Love the pick.
