A year ago, Jorvorskie Lane, his wife and children lived with his grandmother, now he’s the starting fullback for the Dolphins
This isn’t your normal player-overcomes-odds, rags-to-riches Thanksgiving story.
Granted, there’s a lot of that in Jorvorskie Lane’s heartwarming tale — he’s the overweight-furniture-mover-turned-NFL-bruiser — but much of that ground has already been covered.
Instead, this is a real-life screen play about those closest to the Dolphins’ first-year fullback: Lane’s wife Chan, and little Javia, Jai’Unna and Jorvorskie Jr., his kids, none older than 6.
Last holiday season, they didn’t have their own home. Mom and dad were out of work. They survived on government assistance and the kindness of family and friends.
Happy Thanksgiving to the Lane family!
