Paul Kuharsky of ESPN South Blog has asked some rookies around the division what would life without football be like. Today, Jaguars rookie defensive end Andre Branch was featured.

Here's what Branch had to say:

“My God brother owns some group homes in the Richmond, Va., area, that’s what I’d be doing. My degree is in sociology with a minor in education. I love working with kids. The Richmond area has a lot of underprivileged kids and I’d probably be working with them, kids that don’t have anywhere to go. I love kids and I just really like the idea of being able to help people out that need it.”

As a graduate of the Social Sciences myself, I can personally say he is most likely making a positive impact in those youths lives. It is great to see athletes put their jobs aside sometimes, and put things in perspective. Kudos to Andre Branch for giving back to his original community in his spare time.
