Feel good story
This year's feel-good story has to be wr Davone Bess.
Okay, the short bio is that he had a scholarship to Oregon State, but was arrested in his senior year, and spent 15 months in a juvenile detention center. He naturally lost his scholarship.
BUT, he played on a 7-7 team while in the facility, and a recruiter from Hawai'i saw him, and recommended him to June Jones who offered him a four year scholarship.
He put up some big numbers in that pass-whacky offense (293-3610 and 41 TDs in *3* years), but went undrafted.
Miami signed him as a free agent, and he worked hard and made the Dolphins roster.
We love stories like this guy.
