“My little brother Harry Dismukes has epilepsy. His doctors have never been able to figure out what causes his seizures. This is why I chose to start my foundation and serve as a member of the Athletes vs Epilepsy Team. I have been given a platform because of what I was able to accomplish on the football field. Now that I cannot be on the field, it’s my turn to give back to those that helped me along the way.”
