Marshawn Lynch grew up in the rough streets of Oakland where his single mother would work 3 different jobs just to make ends meet. Consequently, his main purpose in life, even ahead of football, was to help troubled youth, who deal with the same challenges he did. He would go on to earn a 3.2 GPA and became one of the best running backs in the game. This allowed him to build his long standing dream; a youth centre in Oakland.
“I’m blessed. I’m blessed every day I wake up. So I just try to maximize everyday to the fullest.”
