His name is Darnell Dockett and he’s actually from Atlanta but after his mother was tragically murdered when he was 13, he came to Burtonsville, MD (my town) and attended Paint Branch High School (in Silver Spring, MD). I have met Darnell aka Donny before (went to school with his fiancee) and he’s a really nice guy, but when I read his story this evening I had tears in my eyes. It’s a blessing that this young man has come so far. It’s a blessing that his uncle adopted him and raised him and had him play football. He has an incredible story and I just really had to shine some light on. So please pass this story on. It’s proof that if you have determination you can over come anything in life.
