Professional careerEdit

Grant was selected by the Indianapolis Colts in the 1992 NFL Draft and briefly played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1997[citation needed]. Grant was the Colts' Hard Nose Player of the Year in 1994, when he recorded a fumble recovery. In 1995, Grant started all 16 games of the season and recorded his first career professional interception. Injuries ended Grant's career early in 1997 however, after spending six seasons in the NFL.


"I was stumbling through life, wondering who I was; trying to find myself through fame, money, power, women. It wasn't until I accepted myself as my Lord and Savior that everything became clear, and I finally became who I was destined to be." - Reverse side of a football card he passes out at schools he speaks to.
