Neil Haley, The Total Tutor host of the Total Celebrity Show, interviewed NFL player Louis Vasquez, offensive guard for the Denver Broncos, to find out about his career and charity work.
Vasquez, who was born of Mexican-American decent, was drafted in the third round by the San Diego Chargers in 2009. He was born and raised in a small town in Texas. He started playing football when he was 8 years old and went on to play college football at Texas Tech University before entering the NFL. After playing three seasons with the Chargers, he signed a free agent contract with the Broncos in 2013. One of the highlights of his career so far is when he got the call that he was named an All Pro.
Now, Vasquez is giving back to the community. In the interview he explained he will be part of a charity event with George Lopez that helps less fortunate families in the Latino communities. Another charity Vasquez will be working with is Chicano Bikers Club. This also will raise money for less fortunate Hispanic families. He wants to help youth and provide a message that you can be successful any aspect in life.
CEO of Simply G Media GJ Reynolds had this to say, “Louis understands the platform he has been given and is using his past background, faith a current circumstances to give back and have an impact. He is an All-Pro both on and off the field!”
Vasquez, who grew up in the Catholic Church and faced challenges when his parents divorced early in his life. Vasquez shared his challenges on the show. “It was a challenging life living in a single family home. It was me and my father. We moved every other month. From a new apartment to another home.”
His family members are strong believers in the faith. While growing up in the Catholic Church, the older he got the more he grew in his faith, said Vazquez. Now he believes that with his success comes great responsibility.
