For Ricky, leading an active and athletic lifestyle through playing football kept him in shape and for the most part, healthy.
His love for the game allowed him to succeed, playing on through college. However, due to an unfortunate sports injury, Ricky suddenly felt his love and
passion for football start to diminish.
What followed was the sudden weight gain acquired from eating habits that went unchecked, coupled with an active workout routine that was now inactive.
