ADRI.V The Go Getta had the chance to interview a college friend and friend of the show James Starks from the Green bay Packers #44 a former Running Back for the University at Buffalo. He shares his experience and advice and why its important to be a Go Getta
I had the chance before he went to jail and became a statistic to interview Lyfe Jennings. I asked him about the his latest song statistic and encouraging words to share with the youth. Although his words was inspiring its just disappointing to see how this all unfolded.
ADRI.V The Go Getta got a chance to sit down and talk with friend and fellow University at Buffalo graduate Naaman Roosevelt Buffalo Bills #18 Wide Receiver.
Meet Naaman Roosevelt
Roosevelt attended St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute in Buffalo where he played at the quarterback position before staying in Buffalo to attend the University at Buffalo. Roosevelt was the first recruit of new head coach Turner Gill. He started 7 games as a freshman and was converted into a wide receiver, catching 31 passes and 2 touchdowns. In his second year, the wide receiver caught 63 passes and 4 touchdowns. In his junior season, Roosevelt dramatically increased his production, catching 104 passes, primarily from quarterback Drew Willy. On September 13, 2008 Rooselvelt caught a Hail Mary Pass from QB Drew Willy as time expired against the Temple Owls. Also in his junior season, Buffalo won the 2008 MAC Championship Game against Nate Davis and the Ball State Cardinals. Roosevelt's 104 receptions was one short of the MAC Conference record at the time. Roosevelt graduated in 2009 and, the following season, Roosevelt caught 70 passes and 9 touchdowns.
Roosevelt went undrafted in the 2010 NFL Draft. On April 24, Roosevelt signed a contract with the Buffalo Bills. Roosevelt was cut by the Bills on final cuts on September 4, 2010 but signed to their practice squad on September 5, 2010. On November 27, 2010, Roosevelt was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster. On October 16, 2011, Roosevelt caught his first pro TD pass on a 60 yard catch-and-run at MetLife Stadium against the Giant.
