Torri Stuckey played football at Northwestern and has dedicated his post-playing career to helping others.
Stuckey, who was born in the same Illinois town, Robbins, that Dwyane Wade grew up in, played safety and was a captain for the Wildcats. He graduated in 2004 and is now 34.
As someone who worked his way to a better life, he now tries to help others do the same. He has self-help workshops for teenagers and young adults in urban poverty and wrote a book, Impoverished State of Mind: Thinking Outside da Block, on the subject.
Stuckey, who currently lives in Chicago, was featured as part of CSN's Black History Month series. Watch the video above to see more about Stuckey's efforts.
