Shirley Said Her Son Cannot Read
Shirley’s son Jerrell had some problems with NCAA, and things turned dirty after the NCAA made fake statements about Jerrell.
The statement also included the words said by Shirley, according to NCAA.
It said that Shirley said Jerrell didn’t even know how to read. But Jerrell revealed that it was all fake.
He didn’t keep on raising his voice but proved NCAA wrong with his actions.
He successfully graduated and held a degree in his name, shutting down NCAA’s mouth for good. He also posted his graduation photo with his mother on Twitter.
Jerrell Was Chased And Arrested
In January of 2023, former NFL star Jerrell got arrested for the serious charge of kidnapping.
He was not the only one taken into custody by the police. With him, a man named Gavin Bates was also arrested.
Both of them were caught by police after a long chase of more than 100 miles. They were trying to get away from the police, according to the police but were unsuccessful after they were arrested in Mississippi.
The victim of this entire incident confessed to the police that Jerrell and Gavin not just kidnapped him against his will but also forced him to take his money out of his account.
The case is now in the hand of the court, and the decision is still pending. But as the police caught them in a chase red-handed, it is possible for them to be guilty.
Jerrell's Comeback Was Shocking
Jerrell was at his high time in football during his senior year at Wayne County High School as he was making records in the school.
He was one of the best in the game. But to make his NFL dream come true, he had to go to another school granted by NCAA, so he chose Ole Miss to continue his football journey and education.
But as he missed some essential classes because of personal reasons in Wayne County H.S., he was not permitted by NCAA to join the Ole Miss School.
He then had to spend a year at Hargrave Military Academy. But from that school as well, he was removed by NCAA.
After that, he tried for Penn Foster Career School, and the NCAA story repeated.
Finally, he could join his preference, Ole Miss School, but he was not allowed to play or practice.
Fortunately, he proved himself and overcame his failure when he was given some opportunity. He showed his potential in the few chances he was provided and made a name for himself.
Jerrell Had Problems With Reading And Writing
Jerrell was in high school when he was tutored by a teacher named Crager.
In the first class with Crager, she realized that there was a problem going on with Jerrell.
She figured out that Jarrell had an unusual discomfort in reading and writing.
She then figured that he was having some Dyslexia. So, the teacher took him to a mental health counselor.
There he was diagnosed with a disorder named Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) which makes it difficult to study in groups.
Hence, he was separately taught by Crager. She described Jerrell as a brilliant and hardworking student.
