Vernon Hargreaves hopes to have an impact on the field for an NFL team. The former Florida cornerback is already taking steps to make an impact off the field.
Hargreaves has set up a Pledge It campaign to benefit injured military veterans through "Stand by the Wounded." The 20-year-old All-American is asking for people to pledge money for every inch of his vertical leap on Monday at the NFL Scouting Combine.
"Hearing their stories and the stuff they've been through — the real wars and the real gun fights and all that stuff they go through — there's nothing that can prepare you for that," Hargreaves said. "This is the least I can do for them."
