The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback’s message was clear to the 450 graduating students from Camelot Academy in Philadelphia. “I lost my freedom. I lost my money and I lost my family. All because of irrational decisions and using poor judgement. Think before you speak, think before you act and think before you make decisions in life,” Vick told them.
Vick surprised two of the students by giving them $5000 scholarships.
“I was blessed and God gave me a second chance, the world gave me a second chance, the city of Philadelphia gave me a second chance,” Vick said. “That’s what this is all about. These kids had people around who believed in them and knew they could come out of their situations and make it a positive.”
