I will not be pursuing the NFL as an athlete this coming season. Although it is my dream, it is not my life. I set out to accomplish one thing: become an NFL athlete. And I did that. I never put a stipulation on how much I would play, how long I would play.. I just wanted to play. And I did! I hope to remain involved with the NFL, becoming a speaker/teacher /motivator to ALL NFL teams; Sharing my story in hopes of preventing situations such as mine, and inspiring players and coaches to persevere, never quit, and giving back. I thank everyone for their continued support and pray that it continues. BBView more Brian Banks on WhoSay

Happy Sunday everyone. Today I just want to thank everyone who has already donated to Sabein Burgess, a man who spent almost 20 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. I’d like to ask that others join in by donating at least $5 of your hard earned money to help someone in need. Good vibes all around  thank u.

Everyone wont understand you. Your reasoning, your decisions, your OWN way of life. I’ve seen and have experienced SO much in my life. I’ve gone from anger, to frustration, revenge and hate, to rejoicing, to happiness, acceptance, and forgiveness. I don’t expect you to understand, nor agree. That isn’t my purpose. My purpose is simple:

TO WALK IN THE PATH OF THE RIGHTEOUS…
TO BRING HOME THE INNOCENT…
TO TEACH…
TO LEARN…
AND TO LIVE MY LIFE THE WAY I CHOOSE TO…

No one is perfect, I KNOW that I’m not. And I don’t try to be. All I try to be is me: a forever learning and changing young man. All I ever need is my freedom.

And BEST believe… I WONT back down from bringing home the innocent.
