Many college athletes want to make it to the NFL, but a few younger athletes in Texas, remind them that they have already achieved something great — playing at the collegiate level for a historically black college or university… which is indeed, an honor.
Jerry Rice… Michael Strahan… Douglass McNeil III… and most recently, a 2019 South Carolina State University graduate, Alex Brown, are all shining examples of how you can have an amazing black college experience then matriculate to the National Football League to have a successful career.
