KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Shane Ray is a linebacker for the Denver Broncos and a Super Bowl champion. The former SEC Defensive Player of the Year at Mizzou graduated from high school at Bishop Miege, where he helped the Stags win a state championship.

He might have become all of those things, but Ray couldv'e easily gone down the wrong path. His mom, a single-parent, sacrificed to send her only son to a better school to straighten him out and give him a chance at a better life.
