Why James Starks title resonates so loudly in my home | THE BEST OF NICK MENDOLA . . .LIVE
James Starks doesn’t come from much… financially. As Jonah Bronstein skillfully stated in Sunday’s Niagara Gazette, the Starks family is part of a community fabric that carries a work ethic both humble and confident. Despite tearing it up in high school, Starks was always in the background. He wasn’t Paul Harris or Johnny Flynn inside Niagara Falls High School. When he committed to UB for football, then-head coach Jim Hofher put him at cornerback. After an injury derailed a potential senior year that had local folks salivating for the Doak Walker Award, Starks dropped to the sixth round of the draft. He suffered another injury and had to fight just to get onto the NFL field.
