HBCU (Historically Black Colleges & Universities) have been around for a very long time. There’s more HBCU alumni in the NFL Hall of Fame than one would have guessed. Young players who dream of going into the league see a lot of PWI (Predominately White Institutions) as their opportunity to get in. Some work extremely hard in High School to get on that path but it doesn’t always end up that way and that was the case for Darius Leonard. This is his story.
