Daijeon Powell, 23 trains at his alma mater, Frederick Douglass High School on Gwynns Falls Pkwy as he prepares to return to college. Powell, who played semi-pro as a running back with local teams like the Maryland Colts and Baltimore Saints, followed the advice of a coach who encouraged him to return to college while still young. "I've been to college before ... came back home and, I've got an opportunity again and I just feel blessed," Powell said, about his chance to return to college at University of Virginia-Lynchburg.
