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.
