My name is Derrickus Kelly (I go by 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. 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!
