Thanks for sharing...I was aware of a lot of this, but quite a bit I was not. Here's hoping big fluke has a long, lucrative NFL career...regardless though the young man is rich with experience and accomplishments.

Do you guys remember when he was in high school that you tube of him running through a cones agility drill - may have been at an Army All-American practice? He did like a forward roll at the very end as kind of a goof. It was incredible seeing a guy of his size moving the way he did. I was blown away by his athletic ability.
Appreciate you posting more

Thanks for insight signusup. I had no clue about the adversity DJ has been faced with. I will be cheering even more for him now! Going to be great for him to take care of his family in a few months.

One of the best posts I've ever read. Thank you.
Someone get him a movie deal too.
I think DJ will be drafted very high ... as a guard. If we weren't loaded w/ Warmack and Steen while being deficient at the tackle position, then I think DJ would have been playing guard for us.
Tim - in the SEC champ game, down 21-10 after the blocked FG TD. Fluker really seemed to be in everyone's face about getting the job done at the point of attack. With every Lacy and TJ carry you could see him noticeably excited on the field. Gotta love that aspect from the gentle giant off the field. Turns it on - on the field.
That's what I was thinking. DJs story is where real determination and perseverance is found. Many kids who think giving up is an option should hear this story.
