SERMON'S GOLDEN NUGGETS

  • Cites his mother, Natoshia, as one of his biggest inspirations for the resilience she's displayed throughout her life. Her book entitled, "When My Soul Cried" and her nonprofit organization Arise By Faith supports victims of domestic abuse. "I attribute a lot of his success to the strength of his mom," said Billy Shackelford, Sermon's former coach at Sprayberry (Marietta, GA) HS. "His mom is a phenomenal lady. She brings both bags of tricks: she's tough, but also nurturing and loving."
  • Born the day before Super Bowl XXXIII, in which his home- town team Atlanta Falcons appeared, his mother looked at him and said, "This is going to be you one day."
  • Drawing inspiration from his last name, he developed the nicknames 'Preacher' and 'Minister (of the End Zone)' from his teammates.
