Prompted to be more specific about the tribulations he has encountered, he replied, "Just the hardships as far as playing in the world of football — the sacrifices you have to make, things like that. Because there's not many people who have played in every style of football known to man —except Arena. I haven't played any Arena ball.
"But, you know, I went through a lot of things, just to get to where I am today — overcoming the stereotypes of being a black quarterback. Doing a lot of things in college in the past, digging to get you a tryout to the NFL. Now guys are getting drafted that put up the same numbers I did and ended up in the same situation that I did in college. But it's just a lot of things that, you know, weigh into it."
