"Vontae still wears the skeletons of his past today, even when he jogs onto the Washington Redskins practice field in Richmond donning a burgundy No. 48 jersey. As a kid who battled homelessness, Vontae has never had the odds in his favor — similar to his role as an undrafted free agent trying to make the roster."
I hope he can take advantage of his chances to shine.
One writes out of one thing only—one’s own experience. Everything depends on how relentlessly one forces from this experience the last drop, sweet or bitter, it can possibly give. This is the only real concern of the artist, to recreate out of the disorder of life that order which is art. - James Baldwin
