Back in the day, we do not recall many NFL celebrities getting in trouble with the law as they often do in this era. In the 1970's and 80's, it seems like many NFL players were more focused on being a mentor to the youth and not being engaged in criminal activity. Darren Lewis, a former Texas A&M and Carter High School football player is in custody, in connection with a robbery Tuesday at a Duncanville 7-Eleven that left an employee injured, according to DallasMorningNews.com.
Back in 1991, Darren 'Tank' Lewis was drafted by the Chicago Bears, according to Wikipedia.com. After playing three seasons for the NFL team, he was allegedly arrested on domestic charges.
We wonder why there are so many NFL players not turning their lives around to make a positive comeback, after breaking the law? However, it is never to late for anyone to turn their lives around. For some NFL players, it seems like after they commit a crime or are addicted to drugs or alcohol, they get much worst and just end up dead or in prison. Think about it, they are just like some average black men whom are not celebrities who may become another statistic by choice.
This is very sad, Darren Lewis' life did not have to end up this way. Once he was a popular college football star who probably never thought his career would end with him eventually facing serious charges for armed robbery. We sincerely hope he turns his life around while spending time in prison, so he can encourage other NFL celebrities and college football players to do things different and not make the same mistakes he made in life. In the meantime, we will keep Lewis in our prayers.
