Dreams are Legal. For Life.
Before he was returning kicks for touchdowns in the NFL, Antonio “Dayla” Brown was running the tough streets of Miami’s Liberty City in search of a way out. One of five children from a broken home marred by frequent tragedy, Antonio saw firsthand how survival in the housing projects was a challenge. But instead of following the path that led others to trouble with the law, Antonio used his unmatched athletic ability to shine on Miami’s high school football fields and tracks and earn a college scholarship. The pride of the neighborhood, he graduated in four years with a degree from the University of West Virginia and went on to play four seasons in the NFL with the Washington Redskins and Buffalo Bills.
Today, Antonio is a high school teacher and football coach in Miami. He is also a personal trainer to many college and professional athletes as well as the speed and agility program director for a youth baseball academy. Antonio is the proud parent of two Division 1 scholarship athletes (football) as well as academic all-stars in both high school and middle school.
Dreams are Legal is the motto that guided Antonio through his journey. It has become a statement of hope and positive direction for the youth of inner city Miami and other communities touched by Dayla. Help Antonio to share this guidance with others. By purchasing a Dreams are Legal T-shirt, you can spread this message while providing financial support for athletic clinics run by Dayla throughout South Florida.
