Banks Launches Blog to Chronicle Journey

Brian Banks’ incredible, saddening and uplifting life journey is about to take the next step as he gears up for his first NFL training camp. The linebacker, a year ago exonerated for a crime he didn’t commit, is in the middle of trying to defy the odds of making an NFL roster after more than 10 years away from the game.

Banks launched a brand new blog, where he’ll detail his path through 2013 Russell Athletic Atlanta Falcons Training Camp. His first post went up Monday. Here’s an excerpt:

Tomorrow marks another great day, as I travel back to Flowery Branch, GA. Another great mission, another defying act. The odds are against me… But the odds know me well. And although doubt surrounds me, there is no doubt in my mind, there is no fear in my heart. And as I step onto that field day for training camp, and throughout, I will do it with the mindset of a winner. I went to hell and back, and survived a better man. I’ve already won.

This one might be a good one to bookmark throughout camp.
