Pennington did a very good job of covering all of Cruz’s hardships through his life and mentioning his success he has had after overcoming his struggles. If anyone thinks of football players as someone who just won the genetic lottery and his putting his body on the line for some money should read this article.…

    From the front office down to the coaches, and players, as well as fans we all know they can’t just pick up from where they left off last year. In the NFL it just doesn 't work like that. Team chemistry was a big part of the success the team had last year, and it should continue to be even stronger this season. As long as the team comes out of Training Camp healthy with no major injuries, take one day one game at a time. I like the Cowboys chances of competing for a Super Bowl.…

While playing for USC back in 2005 he was viewed by many as the best player in college football and was expected to go number one in the draft. Before attending college Reggie attended an early college high school which allowed him to get his associates.…

    Through the 10 years of me playing football I’ve had and met multiple coaches that I’ve liked of disliked, but at the end of the day you have to deal with them and play the sport you love. The first coach I ever had as soon as I started playing football was David Price and he was the best coach anyone could ask for.
