American footballer, Jarvis Green has been playing the game since he was in high school in Louisiana. At 32, he has been playing since he was in the 7th grade. On leaving high-school he played on the Louisiana State University team and on leaving was drafted by the New England Patriots. From this point on, he has played continuously for teams such as the Denver Broncos and the Houston Texans. He also runs a constuction company with long-standing friend Nathian Hossley, supported by his major in construction engineering.
