Josh Gordon is stuck in a veritable quagmire. The question his return to NFL play seems all the less important now that we’ve learned he could face jail time over his child support battle with Christina Lockhart. The mother his three year old child is holding him accountable for $6,765 every month, beginning in August. Incidentally, Gordon did not post the court-ordered provision, but problem is: the Cleveland Brown’s wideout doesn’t receive his first paycheck until September 1st. The $6,765 alimony is being measured against his 2018 salary $800,00.
TMZ obtained documentation which lists the punitive measures that will be taken until he posts his first payment. Gordon could be sentenced to 30 days in jail for the first violation, 60 days for the second violation and 90 days for the third. That being said, the Cleveland Browns still expect Gordon to eventually return from his granted leave absence. The talented receiver is camped in Gainesville, Florida, under the watchful eye a NFL-sanctioned medical staff. The hope is that Gordon can return to his best mental state, and they won’t rush due process.
Although there were rumblings Gordon had failed a league-issued drug test in the fseason, reports seem to indicate the very opposite. The troubled football star is never-the-less not in a mental position to compete at the NFL team. Hopefully team and player make his mental health a priority in the coming days-weeks-months.
LeBron James isn’t the only athlete & public figure out here making a change for the youth. Former NBA MVP & Timberwolves star Derrick Rose is launching a college scholarship program called “The Rose Scholars,” which seeks to give high school students the opportunity they need to make their dreams a reality. The program will provide more than $400,000 dollars in tuition money through the program.
According to RoseScholars.com, the program “is open to high school sophomore, junior and senior students who are civically minded and have an instinct to lead. Rose] is gifting one grand prize winner up to $200,000, paid out $25,000 per semester for four years plus two smaller winners for up to $20,000.”
“Through The Rose Scholars program, I hope to provide students a path to college that was not previously available to them,” Rose said in a statement. “Investing in school-age youth has long been a passion mine, and I am proud to continue to help children pursue higher education as a means to better themselves and their communities.”
This isn’t the only time Derrick has given back to the youth. Back in 2014 while with the Bulls, Rose donated $1 million to After School Matters, a Chicago-based nonprit organization that provides after-school programs for students.
LeBron James has been building a school for at-risk children in his hometown for about a year now after outlining the project in 2016, but truth be told, the project has coursed through his mind for at least a decade. The I Promise School will aim to educate children from “challenging situations or backgrounds.” The issue is close to LeBron’s heart, because he knows he was fortunate to circumvent the underfunded education system athletic scholarship. That’s why he’s chosen to provide the less fortunate a better nurturing ground.
LeBron expressed his jitters over the unveiling this afternoon on Twitter, in response to a posting from his LJ’s Fam Foundation Twitter handle. The post enlightened us to LBJ’s attendance record: “83 days school (missed) in the 4th grade.” With that being said, LeBron is merely suggesting that his environment was not conducive to his success. But he made it worth through sheer determination.
Any efforts to humanize his experience go a long way because at times LeBron appears to us like a larger than life figure. But when you put everything into context, you started to see the effort and determination that went into his grandstand. With I Promise School, LeBron hopes to make things a little easier for future generations.
