Chargers' Star Overcoming Demons

Darren Sproles, who had a fantastic game last Saturday with 105 rushing yards and two touchdowns, may be a hero on the field and also in the community.

According to a story just published on the website, Sproles hates talking in front of a large audience like he had to do after the game. The article continues to mention that Sproles has had a stuttering problem since the age of 4:

"Over time, one-on-one interviews or sessions in small groups became tolerable. But the podium, where the team's stars are traditionally taken after games or midweek practices, might as well have been as frightening as the Grand Canyon."

"I've got to learn how to do it, how to deal with it, really," he said. "It's just something that I want to get better at."
