Maurice Talton

Bronx, NY. He grew up around sports, playing football, baseball and basketball. As he entered his teens, football became his main sport. As his love for the game grew, his skills grew as well. Many of his friends and family encouraged him to continue working on the talent that he had been blessed with in football. While other kids were playing video games and hanging out with friends, he was in the gym. He spent hours after school and on weekends working on his strength, speed and agility. By the time he entered August Martin High School in NY, his hard work had paid off. As a freshman, he landed the starting quarterback position. He continued in that position through-

out his senior year. He also continued working hard in the gym to ensure that his mind and body were ready for the beatings that it would take on the field. After setting and breaking several previously set high school records, he transitioned to receiver position. After graduating from high school, he entered Nassau Community College in NY. Again, his hard work paid off, while playing football for Nassau, he was offered the opportunity to play football for C.W.Post University in NY. After playing for and winning championships at CW Post, he was offered a tryout with the NFL football team the NY Jets. He continues to play football today.
