Good story

I ran into Ronnie Prude at a celebrity basketball game in Shreveport.

Prude said his reason for playing in the game was to give something back to the kids. He talked about when he was younger and following some of the stars.

Prude has a great story for kids to hear. He sat out a year at LSU getting eligible. He didn't become a full-time starter until his senior year. And when draft time came, he was undrafted.

Yet he never gave into despair. He signed with the Baltimore Ravens and played a lot last season as a nickel back.

It's good to see someone overcome and enjoy the realization of their dream.
