Dressed in matching orange T-shirts, the former Lakeland High School stars walk about the camp with smiles on their faces and an inability to decline a photo or autograph request.

The Pouncey twins are NFL stars — Pro Bowl offensive lineman with $40-plus million contracts — but the process of becoming role models to Lakeland's youth has required some personal growth.

learning from your mistakes is a start but now they have to prove that they can stop making those same mistakes

Exactly. It's rare in professional sports, but sometimes these guys really do mature and grow into decent human beings. I've been very critical of Mike Poncey in the past, but hopefully he's finally getting on track.

Reading behind the lines in the "Bullygate" report, it sure sounded like Pouncey was very much into partying and drugs...lets pray that stuff is in the past, because the Phins NEED him to stay out of trouble.
