Courtney Hawkins was a All-American football player at Michigan State and spent 10 years in the NFL. He left all that to return to Flint, Michigan which is just as poor as when he left. Hawkins is the football coach at Flint-Beecher High School where he played. He came back to not just coach football but to be that male role model that many kids are missing in their lives. Hawkins is determined to teach life lessons to these kids through football.
