What could make him risk his freedom and even his life to help people who might as easily see him as a villain as a hero? Marcus loved playing football. He had dreamed of playing in the NFL, but he left it all behind to follow another dream. His new dream was to walk in the footsteps of the people who had struggled and sacrificed so that he could enjoy all the rights and liberties provided by America's Constitution. Marcus was an extraordinary young man who learned that his gifts, both physical and mental, were intended for more than scoring touchdowns and making money.

Help came in the form of guidance from an older, wiser mentor...his Uncle Freddy...who saw his destiny even before he did.

Follow Marcus as he turns his dream into The Plan. Watch Marcus use The Plan to transform his community from an urban nightmare into a thriving marketplace where people, families and strangers alike could live, play and work together in harmony.
