as football player what other career do you think you would have excelled at? Did you ever want to be anything else?

I NEVER PLANNED TO BE A FOOTBALL PLAYER. I WENT TO COLLEGE TO BE A BANKER. I HAD A JOB WITH A BANK IN ATLANTA WHEN I WAS DRAFTED BY THE RAMS. I HAD A FEW MONTHS TO GO TO GRADUATE AND I WAS GOING TO WORK FOR THAT BANK IN THE SUMMER. I HAD A GOOD JUNIOR AND SENIOR YEAR, BUT SCOUTS WERE NOT KNOCKING DOWN MY DOOR. I WAS TOLD MAYBE I'D GET DRAFTED IN THE 4TH ROUND OR LATER SO I DIDN'T KNOW IF I'D EVEN MAKE A TEAM.

THEN WHEN I WENT IN THE FIRST ROUND AND TO LA, ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY IT WAS A NEW WORLD. AND MY COACH WAS ON ME SO OFTEN IN LA I THOUGHT I'D BE CUT ANY MINUTE. PROTHRO HATED ME FOR SOME REASON.

SO, I DIDN'T ASPIRE TO PRO FOOTBALL, I SUPPOSE I EXCELLED ENOUGH TO MAKE IT, BUT IF NOT FOR FOOTBALL I WOULD HAVE BEEN IN BANKING OR SOME KIND OF BUSINESS. IF NOT THAT PERHAPS LAW ENFORCEMENT. MY GRANDDADDY WAS A SHERIFF IN NORTHERN FLORIDA AND I MAY HAVE GONE THAT ROUTE.
