Him and his blind mom, blinded after a jealous girlfriend threw acid in her face. Have a lot of respect for him. 

I remember hearing that story a few years ago.  Crazy.  Watson also seems like a great guy as well.  They choke every year but I do believe that have SB talent.

I really hope that woman he splashed the acid is in jail for a long time...that's attempted murder.  

I think 20 years.

They definitely do have the talent.  That's why I predicted them to go to the SB before the season started.  D. Hopkins definitely seems like a good dude on and off the field.  He's been one of my favorite players since entering the league especially since he doesn't have a huge ego like many of these elite players nowadays.

When you read that story and learn of the environment he grew up in, it really makes you appreciate all that he's overcome to get to this point.  It takes a very strong person not to allow themselves to become a product of their environment in that situation.

I live in the area -- 20 or so miles away -- Coach Swinney seems to recruit very nice young men for his teams.

Having sort of a down year so far but easily the best wideout in the game for me. Thanks for the story

Girlfriend?

Quote

Seventeen years. That's how long it has been since she lost her vision when a woman she didn't know threw acid at her face, blinding and disfiguring her in a bout of jealous rage. 

 

Tragic story.

The "girlfriend" was another girlfriend of her boyfriend who borrowed her car and she was attacked when she went to get it.
