http://www.cnn.com/2009/US/11/26/nfl.skid.row.teen/index.html NFL's $45 million man helps Skid Row teen's college dream By Thelma Gutierrez and Wayne Drash, CNN November 26, 2009 12:08 p.m. EST Here's an excerpt from the article; Seventeen-year-old Kenneth Chancey is giving a tour to Nnamdi Asomugha, showing the NFL star the streets that he and his sister used to walk to get to school while living in a Skid Row homeless shelter. Prostitutes, addicts and drug dealers scatter. "Camera! Camera!" they shout. The two make it safely past the park, one of the roughest areas of Los Angeles. An orange soda whizzes through the air, nearly hitting the teen and the Oakland Raiders' All-Pro cornerback worth $45 million. "Wow," the teen says. "I'm sure they watch you every Sunday, and they don't even recognize who you are." It is Kenneth's inner strength and his love for education that have brought together this high school class president and NFL star. "The thing I took away is how fearless he is," Asomugha said later. "The things he's been through are so big and so severe -- they were threatening our lives and throwing things at us on Skid Row. But it doesn't bother him.
