Former NFL player talked to Williamsburg students

WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. (WYMT) - A Super Bowl winner and former NFL player visited students in Williamsburg on Thursday.

Former Dallas Cowboy Defensive Back Clayton Holmes says he had a rough childhood and did not make some good choices in his life.

He played football in college with Whitley County Coroner Andy Croley who asked him if he could speak to the students. It is part of the Coroner's "Win 1 Way and Win Drug Free" program.

Holmes came from Washington state to speak to the students.

Holmes talked to students about problems and how to overcome them instead of turning to drugs.

"I was once a lost child and didn't have the guidance and motivation that I need and I remember Harry Carson and other players and people that came into my life and gave me good direction and I want to do the same thing," said Holmes.

Holmes played defensive back when the Cowboys won three super bowls in the 1990s.

He is also talking to students at Whitley County and Corbin schools this week.
