This is the stuff of a Hollywood movie. Think Stand And Deliver meets The Blind Side. But instead of Hollywood stars, we have a real couple from Tampa, Florida. Their names are Andria Rogers Owen and Dominic Owen, and they’re an example of what happens when you have a servant’s heart and you’re driven to help people. Their story starts with helping some kids on the high-school football team, and it snowballs into a non-profit organization with national reach. Train Up First, known as TUF, is capturing the attention of educators across the country. Dominic and Andria’s business essentially began at their kitchen table. Now, they’re helping tens of thousands of kids across the country do better in school and be better people out in the world. And it all began with a conversation between a Florida mom, and a couple of underprivileged kids who mistakenly thought they were getting a full ride to a division one college and then the NFL.
