WASHINGTON, D.C. (KTRK) -- A high school football player is tackling the road blocks of life.
Jamal Speaks, 18, was kicked off the team for two years because he was homeless.
On Friday, Speaks got a second chance to play the sport he loves.
Speaks thrived in his return to the field as his team won in the final seconds, 29-26.
Speaks is also winning off the field. He received a scholarship offer from Temple University.
A GoFundMe page was also created and has racked up over $30,000.
