American football player Malcolm Butler is a household name of the game today, due to his spellbound interception in the Super Bowl XLIX, leading the Patriots to a victory. However, his journey to this spectacular position was not easy as he has faced removals from the high school game and went unnoticed while trying to debut in the professional football. Born in Vicksburg, Mississippi, Butler graduated in 2009 from Vicksburg High School. He played the football during his freshman & senior years and earned a scholarship to join Hinds Community College.
The first major hurdle to his dream career appeared during his term at Hinds Community College, where he could play only 5 games before being rooted out. Malcolm was arrested for the possession of drugs, followed by which, he pursued with a job at the Popeye’s. He referred to this phase as life-changing, which transformed him and led him to be known as one amongst the American top football players.
