From Surviving On the Streets, to NFL Fields, and Back to the Streets - The Heroic Journey of Tyrus McCloud

From 11 years old, Tyrus McCloud was surviving on the streets in one of the most dangerous zip codes in the country. He used his size and aggression to bully and shakedown other kids for the money he needed to eat. But that same size and aggression caught the eyes of his high school football coaches. Good men who saw greatness in McCloud and guided him off the path to prison, to a college scholarship, and then to the NFL, as a linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens.

McCloud tells how it was experiencing that guidance and mentorship from great men that led him to his true purpose: Back to the streets he grew up on, to help young men there escape from the streets and influences that almost consumed him. McCloud holds nothing back, and tells the real story of his family tragedies, his own personal demons, and the frustration and struggle to keep young men on the right path.
