Vick Speaks to Student at Martin Luther King High School

Michael Vick told studens at Martin Luther King high school that the toughest part of his life after prison has been staying away from old friends according to Maryclaire Dale of the Associated Press.

The Eagles quarterback spoke to students about his criminal dogfighting case and the 544 days he spend in federal prison and urged them to avoid a similar fate.

“Getting away from all the people that I was used to being around every day, that I thought had general love for me (was tough),” Vick said at the event in North Philadelphia, organized by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Philadelphia. “The hardest decision was just dedicating my life to change.”

One student asked if Vick ever tires of talking about the dogfighting case.

“I get tired of talking about the prison experience, but you know, it’s therapeutic to me,” he said. “(Prison) made me a better person. I probably wouldn’t change a thing in my life.”
