Millions of people around the world would love the opportunity to play in the NFL, but one man in particular is willing to give up everything in order to get a shot at the pros.

Rashid Williams, a 26-year-old former college track star, has emptied out his savings account, sold his luxury sedan and bought a van to live in in order to pursue his dream of playing in the NFL—in spite of the fact that he never played college football while at Division II Holy Family in Philadelphia.

After college, Williams went to Penn State to get his MBA, and now he's working to make a dream a reality. It's a long shot, but it looks like Williams is determined, and his story is truly a remarkable one.
