    If people knew the background on a lot of these kids, they would be much more understanding. They are very easy to pull for.

    I got to know the McKenzies through Courtney when he was in school. There is no doubt in my mind that they helped him get to where he is today. They were a loving, supportive, selfless family that treated him like their son. Courtney was so shy and softspoken when he got to campus I was worried how he would adjust. I saw him after the draft and he was still the sweet humble kid but he had grown as much as a person as any player I have seen.

    Upshaw gave the Best Post game speech after the NCG I can't get enough of him saying Roll Tide Baby!

    Not all former players leave with that Crimson Blood but he sure did!

    Great article about an all too common situation our kids are growing up in. I hope we as a nation continue to find great kids like Courtney and help them succeed in life.
