Marques Clark thought his once-in-a-lifetime opportunity came last summer. After six years away from football and getting laid off from a couple of jobs, the former Henderson State receiver landed a job as the receivers coach at Westview High School in his hometown of San Diego.

Westview just happened to be the place where some NFL players such as New Orleans Saints quarterbacks Drew Brees, Chase Daniel and Sean Canfield spent their summers doing passing drills.

And sure enough, Brees saw Clark coaching players and asked if he wanted to run some routes.

Unbelievable, right?

Wait 'til you hear the rest of the story.

Maybe he'll look good enough to get picked by some one. For a WR to even make the Saints practice squad is a tall order. I wish him luck.

"Every day I wake up like, 'Where am I right now? Am I really here?'" said Clark, who didn't run a 40 or have an NFL tryout after his college career ended in 2006. "Every time I walk in the locker room, I'm smiling, and I don't even know why."

Good Luck Marques ! I'll be pulling for you.
