SideLines: This is not a football story
This is a story about football, but not really. It’s actually about faith and believing in yourself.
When Garrett Gilkey was a freshman at Sandwich High School, he was much smaller and more demure than he is today. Now, the 6-foot-6, 320-pound 22-year-old literally towers over most people, something he definitely didn’t do when he was 14.
No, when he was 14, Garrett was a skinny teenager who had just undergone heart surgery, which prevented him from playing football. “I was like this really skinny, red-headed, freckly kid,” he told me not long ago. “I was bullied and ostracized my freshman year.”
