When you’re at the top of professional football, the fall to the bottom is steep.
One minute I’m the face of the franchise. Next thing I know I’m being sent away after my self destructive ways have become too much to handle.
Little does my team know that sending me back to my hometown is the worst thing they could have done.
She’s here. The one who broke me. The one who sent me to rock bottom.
She’s also the only one who can put my damaged self back together.
I’ve loved Lucy Valenti since the moment I met her. Her big brown eyes and kind smile hooked me in. Her faith in me made me want to be a better man. She’s the only one who has ever seen me as more than a football player.
She was my end game. My final play. But I ran out of time.
Or did I? Because I can’t ignore the sparks that fly when we are around each other. Or the heat that still burns between us.
I always said the offseason was going to be our time. And if I don’t throw one last Hail Mary, it might be the end.
And this is a game I’m not willing to lose.
