Goldmine


  • In September of 2016, Hightower teamed with Whole Foods in  Metairie, LA to make his Chef debut and raise money for the International Justice Mission, a global organization that protects the poor from violence in the developing world. “Since about 2010, I got into the kitchen as really a way of doing something different. You get into the routine of playing football and working out and it’s kind of a way to take some stress off and take my mind away and learn about something I’m passionate about,” Hightower said at the time.
  • Hightower lives his life by the motto “Purpose Driven” and has the words inscribed in a tattoo on his back. Since the fifth grade, his goal was to make it to the NFL. “When you understand your purpose, that purpose will drive you,” Hightower said in 2011. “That focus, that goal, it drove me to the point where that’s all I could think about. That was it. That was my purpose, to get to the NFL.”
  • Hightower suffered a broken foot during his senior year of high school. After most college recruiters stopped calling, he accepted the only scholarship he received from the University of Richmond. Taking advantage of the opportunity, Hightower developed into the school’s all-time leading rusher and was inducted into the Richmond Athletics Hall of Fame in 2012 (pictured below). “It truly was a blessing. I went from this kid who was very unsure of his future, had no clue what the next day held, to being a kid with a support system, with a coaching staff, with teammates, who helped me become somebody who people respect,” Hightower said at the induction ceremony.
