No two journeys are identical.
What's most important is the destination, and Turner County's Devascea Blanks was very emotional in when picking his destination to play college football.
Blanks signed with Lamar Sports Academy.
The Steelers are a prep school program out of Jacksonville that participates in the National Collegiate Athletic Union.
Blanks played defensive end and tight end for the Turner County Rebels.
His college announcement also came on his birthday.
With his families, teammates and friends present, Blanks celebrated life and overcoming self-doubt with his playing career.
"It was some times I thought about giving up on my dreams," said Blanks. "But people just kept pushing me to don't give up."
Blanks plans to play for a 4-year football program after his stint at LSA.
