Graham, now 6 feet 8 and 250 pounds, runs through his history so quickly it seems he's still trying to escape it. Born in Lillington, N.C., Graham said he never knew his biological father who was "kicked out of the house before I was one," and he spent hardly any time with his mother.

Before meeting Vinson, Graham already had spent seven months in foster care. "Honestly the worst part of my life," he said. "I had to fight for something to eat. All my clothes were in a black garbage bag. I cried myself to sleep."

While he showed some enthusiasm for football at Eastern Wayne High School, Graham had little interest in anything but surviving at home. His bed was an army cot, and his belongings were stuffed in a shoebox. His grades were crashing with a report card reading four Fs and a 19 in keyboarding.
