Wilson Manigat in a Nutshell
I can be described as a quiet warrior making plays on the football field and soaring in the classroom. I went to Jackson State University (JSU) on an athletic scholarship for football and majored in Biology with a concentration on Medicine (although Journalism and sports is where my heart truly remains.)
During my tenure at JSU, I was very active on campus. I completed scientific research, conducted seminars and wrote profusely to gain grants to fund our projects. I was also a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), Tiger Club: Athletic Student Government, and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). Additionally, I served as Team Captain for the JSU Tigers Football Team as an Offensive Linemen. I helped lead them to the Southwestern Athletic Conference Championship (SWAC) in 2007. Even with my academic and professional pursuits, I am most proud of my community involvement and service.
I served as a volunteer for the Mississippi Habitat for Humanity, University Medical Center of Mississippi Anesthesiologist Technician and General wing, Jackson Public Schools, and Jackson Soup Kitchen for the Homeless.
I write because I just can't imagine myself not writing; It's my passion to say the least and to be able to write about sports is an absolute dream come true.
Should the CFL allow suspended NFL players?
