From College Quarterback to Prisoner to Criminal Justice Professor, Damon West Shares His Inspiring Story
A Division 1 starting quarterback at the University of North Texas, Damon West had it all. But at just 20 years old, he suffered an injury that tragically ended his ability to play football. He started using drugs, became a functioning addict, and held high profile jobs…until he turned to crime. One life ended and another began on July 30, 2008, when he was surrounded by a SWAT team and their guns. A 65-year prison sentence followed.
A promise to his mother and a conversation with a special person changed his perspective and gave him strength to make parole; he eventually end up being released. The conversation involves a carrot, an egg, and a coffee bean. Now, Damon shares his story with others and emphasizes that the most dangerous prison can be your mind.
