AUGUSTA, Ga -- One of Augusta's favorites is back in town. Deon Grant, doing what he does best, visiting the kids at the area schools. Today, a busy schedule for him with a half dozen stops.

We caught up with the former Josey star at Murphy Middle School as he talked to a gym full of youngsters. Even during his illustrious football playing days, Grant never forgot where he came from and is probably more involved than ever. His best moments are when kids tell him he's made a difference.

"I only do schools and sometimes I go to the Southsides and the Sunsets and down to the other communities," Grant. "I do get that a lot, they come and talk to me and actually give me some quotes they may have had. I really enjoy that piece a lot because I know they're definitely out there listening."

Grant has his own foundation to help out with the schools and programs in the area. He does whatever he can to make a difference in these kids' lives.
