Had a hard time swallowing this story. Especially the part where he looks around, sees the guys on the field and says he had nothing left to prove and dropped a few names. It was a great accomplishment to make it to an NFL camp, but he did nothing with the opportunity.

Comparing him to Eli Herring bugs me too. Herring walked away from guaranteed millions as a first round draft pick. Instead he chose one of the least glamorous professions but has the opportunity to literally change the world one student at a time. Rich never made the team because he walked away and is now a salesman for a social media company. Not the most flattering of comparisons for Rich.

Good for Andrew Rich. This story is inspiring. BTW, my sister had the very first operation of the same kind that Andrew Rich's son had many, many years ago. Hopefully, her experience back in 1965 helped out the Rich's son with his operations. My sister was the guinea pig so to speak.
