Martinez, Ga--When Terrence Trammell started high school, he had no clue what his future might hold. Then, he was introduced to hurdles on his high school track. Fast forward 18 years, and the two-time silver medalist hurdler was delivering his message to a similar group at Augusta Christian. Trammell met with the Lions' football and cross country teams this afternoon to tell his story and show off some hardware. The reason for it all? To teach these kids that, no matter their situation, anything is possible.

"Give them a spark of confidence. Let them know that it is possible. It is very, very possible. Whatever your goals are in life, whether it be on or off the playing field, write it down. See it. The more you see it, the more you believe it."

The motivational talk wasn't the only reason he was in town. Trammell is introducing a new sports apparel line with much of the product coming from right here in Augusta.
