Back in 2010, Pete DeSouza was the starting right tackle at Maryland. Then one night his scooter was struck by a car, breaking both of DeSouza’s legs. After extensive rehab, he made it all the way back to the Terps’ practice squad, but doctors remained concerned about further and permanent injuries.
DeSouza took on the role as “student coach” putting his post-football career on a faster track.

NORTHERN HAITI HOPE FOUNDATION: After our recent trip to Haiti, we vowed to do more to help. Clean water is a critical issue for all Haitians. It's particularly problematic for those in rural areas. For $2,000 to $5,000 we can build a new well in a rural village as part of a program facilitated by the St. Barthelemy School and the Warrenton, VA Rotary. Send your donation to Wells of Health and Hope, c/o GPetty-VTA, 38 Garrett Street, Warrenton, VA 20186 and keep your eye on T.A.H. for progress reports. Thanks! CLICK ON THE PHOTO FOR MORE INFO.
