VFL Dwayne Goodrich works at redemption.

A link to the glory days: Goodrich thanked Fulmer, among others, for writing to him in prison. - Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports




As detailed in this ESPN story, former star cornerback Dwayne Goodrich has graduated from Tennessee with a degree in sociology following his release from prison. Goodrich, one of the stars of the 1998 National Championship team, plunged from the heights of athletic success, returning an interception for a touchdown in the Fiesta Bowl and playing for the Dallas Cowboys, to the depths of Texas State Prison following his conviction for criminally negligent homicide, for a drunken car crash that killed two Good Samaritans and injured a third on a Texas interstate.

It's worth a read if you're interested in life after football.
