There couldn't be a better organization and owner for this young man to go to. Given the Panthers family oriented atmosphere and Mr. Richardson being such a good man with respect to his player's family (see Greg Olsen). One of the many reasons this is my favorite team.

What a tremendous burden to put on a young person, obviously one he accepted with love. Serves to remind us all that football is, in the end, all about real people and their families. Not avatars in a video game. It is so much more than just a business to those involved in it.

 

Welcome to the Panthers, to Charlotte, Kony. Glad you are here! Best wishes for success! #KEEPPOUNDING

Such awful character.  What were the Panthers thinking.  Seriously he is going to be motivated.  Nothing is going to stop this kid.  He is not playing for himself.  He is playing for his family.  May God Bless him and his family.  Go kick some @ss Kony!!!  Welcome to the Panthers.

3. KONY EALY, Missouri (6-4, 265, 4.69, 1-2) — Fourth-year junior with 25 starts in 38 games at DE. "I think he could grow into a five-technique," said one scout. "I see him as a rush guy like Paul Kruger was in Baltimore. Where 80, 90% of the time he's rushing. He could do that and eventually grow into a D-end." The 4-3 teams view him as a base end. "I question his fire," another scout said. "If you got the right kind of coaching and put a boot into him, he might be a very good player. Whenever something doesn't work he just shuts her down. He's just kind of out of control. He gets washed out, then he'll make a big-time play." Finished with 93 tackles (27½ for loss) and 14 sacks. Wonderlic of 10. "He thinks he's already an Aldon Smith-type player," a third scout said. "Classic con man. I don't trust this kid. He will be just a big pain in the (expletive). He's one of those 'let somebody else draft him' guys." From New Madrid, Mo. Added a fourth scout: "There's no outstanding traits about him other than he gives you some versatility in a bad (defensive-line) draft. He's a mess. Somebody's going to draft him because they need a defensive end and overdraft him."

 

After watching this especially that part is complete fabrication.

Big kudos to dad for taking them to a small town and out of that environment when given the opportunity.  Great story.

If Kony Ealy needs to break NFC South quarterbacks literally in half to provide medical care for his sister, well then I'm all for that.
