"THE #UNDERDOG WAY"
“Obviously everybody’s path is different. Some people always had it, they made it to where they are and they’re successful. Some people had to go through things and grind through things to get there. I’m kind of really thankful for my journey. I think my journey is what made me the underdog.”-Bobby Portis
Being the underdog...
