On The 50 Yard Line isn’t just a blog name, it’s a lifestyle. My real life attitude’s and moods are conveyed through my writings, the podcast, the videos and my workouts.
Would you believe me if I told you it has taken me a few months to write this?
I created this back in 2015 because I needed a voice for myself. I spend a lot of time on social media and it’s hard to get your point across to people sometimes. So I created a platform where I could unapologetically (not maliciously) convey my thoughts and opinions on football related topics. I also wanted to give others a chance to voice their honest, heartfelt opinions as well and that’s exactly what happened and will continue to happen. On The 50 Yard Line will always be an option for anyone who wants their raw message to be heard.
But fast forward to 2017 and life is just different. The ups and downs I have endured over the last few years have helped me find my purpose.
Nothing more important than this moment here. It’s a full thread on twitter so no need for me to retell the story. But this experience really opened my eyes as far as realizing I don’t have to feel boxed in. I don’t have to follow anyone else’s blueprint to happiness or success. What works for others is cool but I know I’m trying to do something that no one else is doing. Or has the balls to do. And that’s bridging the gap.
When you stay in your lane, you don’t have to worry about what the next man is doing. You don’t have to feel like life is a race. You aren’t competing with anyone but the person you were yesterday.
On The 50 Yard Line can offer you a little bit of everything. As I grow, On The 50 Yard Line will continue to grow. The hope is that one day, this site will be your go to place online for all things sports, fitness, culture (THE culture) and news. We also want to be a voice for the LGBT’s of color. It’s hard out here when there isn’t anybody even attempting to speak for you, much less include you in the conversation. I won’t mention their name, but it’s a pretty popular sports site that targets LGBT’s except if you look at their website, you barely see any black people. Or maybe I just wasn’t looking hard enough (and if that’s the case, you can keep that shit. I’m good).
Just because I’m the face of On The 50 Yard Line, doesn’t mean it’s just me. This is for anybody who ever felt they were in the shadows (or the closet. Can I get a rim shot?)
