Get to know Justin

Hometown: Columbia, SC

Occupation: Professional Football Player – Cornerback

Personal Interests: Food, music and sports.

Favorite Food: Sweet potatoes! Growing up, my grandmother used to make sweet potato pies and I have loved them ever since. I always try to order some when I go to a restaurant. Plus they are good for you!

Most Amazing Place I Visited: I would say The Biltmore Estate in North Carolina. It’s amazing to see the amount of work and detail that was put into the estate during that time (1800′s).

How I Spend My Free Time: I like to watch cartoons and movies. Sometimes I play the drums at home.

Some Unique Qualities About Me: I love to bake, my specialty is cheesecake. I can make it from scratch! If I didn’t play football, I would go to culinary school.

I Am Most Proud: Graduating from college with my degree and making it into the NFL.

Most Embarrassing Date Story: I remember a specific time in college. I took someone out to a restaurant, and as I was turning into the parking lot, the car shut off and died. My car would not start and other cars were starting to line up behind me. I was so embarrassed! Eventually, I was able to crank up the car and get it started. I knew the car would shut off and die sometimes, but I was hoping it would not happen that night!

My Ideal Fun Date: I love to joke around, laugh and have fun! Anything that includes those three things is a fun date.

My Involvement In Community Service: I love spending time with kids. Recently, I visited the Children’s Hospitals in Tucson and Phoenix, and spent time with kids in the intensive care unit. I am also a coach for the NFL Play 60 events for kids in Phoenix. I love seeing the kids smile and laugh. It feels good to know that I am helping them.

Why I Am Putting Myself Up On The Auction Block: Once I heard about the cause, I thought why not? It’s just a little of my time and it will help a lot of kids.
