The retired football pro shared personal stories and words of wisdom, motivating the teens to overcome challenges and make better choices for themselves.

“One of my life statements is that you're not born winners or losers, you're born choosers,” says Shawn Harper former Indianapolis Colts Player. “And if we could just work to expand the capacity of our young kids, our teenagers, I believe that it can reap generations of dividends.”
