Former NFL quarterback and current Fox NFL analyst, Michael Vick says he always wanted to be a guy who “could make a difference in the community.” He did that Saturday when he shared his story with the hundreds of men who attended the citywide prayer breakfast for men at Atlanta’s Ebenezer Baptist Church. Vick, who received an award from church Pastor Dr. Raphael Warnock, offered insight about his story of being a star NFL quarterback at the height of his career to serving a 21-month prison term. He also shared the redemptive journey of his life that saw a league return and a successful post-NFL career.
