Having been recruited to the University of Florida, Richerd Desir-Jones shares his gratitude for his foster parents.

Richerd was taken in by the loving Jones family three years ago, and everyone feels like they’re all family members. It was Richerd’s foster father who first introduced him to sports; the very thing that is bringing him to the University of Florida.

“I didn’t know in the beginning that I needed him more than he needed me,” said his foster father.
