Micheal Oher

The Blind Side


My name is Micheal Oher, I play football in the NFL for the Carolina Panthers. That's not all there is to my story though. When i was just a young boy my mom was the only person around to watch me but she was soon taken to jail leaving me homeless. One day I was on my way to find a place to sleep a family made me get in their car and live with them for as long as I needed, they even got me my own bed. This family encouraged me to play football considering I was the biggest kid at my high school by a few inches and a couple pounds. This would soon lead me to a scholarship to play for Ole Miss where my new family all went. Before I knew it I was drafted into the NFL by the Baltimore Ravens.
