EXTRA POINTS

  • The road to the NFL was anything but easy for linebacker and 2013 second-round draft pick Jamie Collins. The youngest of five siblings growing up in Quentin, Miss., Collins lost both of his parents when he was six years old and was raised by one of his sisters. Collins turned to football as an outlet to help him through the tough times.

    "It means a lot. It's my living," Collins told The Boston Herald. "It kept me on track." Collins' resiliency in dealing with adversity has made a lasting impact on fellow Mississippi native Stevan Ridley, who grew up 30 miles west of Meadville in Natchez, Miss., and got to know Collins through a family friend.

    "What I've known about him, he really has been a strong person," Ridley told The Herald. "Anybody that's gone through the thing that he's gone through and still finds a way to be successful on the football field, you have to be mentally tough. That's what he's kind of done as a teammate here. He's come in here and accepted his role and done a pretty good job as a rookie."

PERSONAL

  • Born Oct. 20, 1989. 
  • Attended Franklin County (Miss.) High School, where he first played as a quarterback, receiver and safety before concluding his career as a quarterback and outside linebacker.
  • Majored in interdisciplinary studies, with an emphasis in industrial engineering technology.
  • Jamie has a son, Jamie Collins, Jr.
