My name is Derrickus Kelly (nickname Dice). I am currently 22 years old and serving in the (Worlds Greatest) Navy as an IT; working at the largest communications station in the world at NCTAMS PAC. Serving in the Navy hasn't been bad, but it has been (and always will be) my dream to play college football. I played from the age of 10 all the way up through high school in Florida. I decided to join the military to help out my mother take care of my 2 younger brothers. (My older brother, Derrick Kelly II (currently signed to the New Orleans Saints) was already in college playing ball at Florida State, so I decided i could take the weight on my shoulders). Even after I enlisted, I have literally NEVER stopped working towards my dream; Constantly getting bigger, faster, stronger, smarter. I know one day I'll end up back on the field. I'm 100% sure I can become an asset and contribute to a program, while also serving as a leader on the team to my younger peers and obtaining a bachelors degree. I cannot wait until my time comes back around! I have a ton of questions and am eager to hear anything back from anyone!
