Foxworth Making Strides

June 16, 2008, 9:57 PM by Tony Burns

Foxworth Making Strides
The Celebrity Football Camp's list of distinguished NFL guests continued to grow on Monday, with the addition of Denver Broncos cornerback Dominique Foxworth. And he is quickly emerging both on and off the field.

Foxworth and the rest of the Denver Broncos community were rocked by the tragic shooting death of teammate Darrent Williams back in 2007.  But less than two years later, both sides are working hard to keep his legacy alive.

Denver Bronco Cornerback Dominique Foxworth says, "Losing Darrent was a major loss for all of us. A lot of the staff at the Broncos and myself committed ourselves to building a Darrent Williams memorial teen center, which has really helped out kids in the community. Its given kids a safe place to go to avoid peer pressure and violence. I really feel like the teen center is going to save lives, even though Darrent lost his." 

Foxworth's work off the field has drawn high praise, including a nomination for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award.  But this three-year pro has made strides on the field as well, and he's finally starting to feel comfortable in the pros.

Foxworth says, "The game slows down, it always annoys me to hear people say that, but that's the best way to describe it. You're able to think on the field, where before it's all reaction and it's just athleticism and reaction. Once it starts to slow down for you, you can think and anticipate and make more plays that way." 

And while his stock continues to rise within the N-F-L.  Foxworth has no intention of resting on his laurels.
 
Foxworth says, "There's one thing about this league, when you start looking back and appreciating what you've done, it's almost time for you to get out. I still have a lot more to do and I'm excited about the future."
