Luther Maddy was born in Delray Beach, Florida not long after his mother and father relocated from Haiti in hope for better opportunity. Growing up was not always pleasant for Luther and his five siblings. Money was low, but they found a way to keep it going. Between moving from house to house and having sleep for dinner, Luther realized that he had to grow up quickly. His step mother was on her feet all day working at a factory and his father was gone all day driving for a limo service. Luther had many opportunities to go in the complete wrong direction, but after a couple mistakes in high school, he decided to take football seriously. It became obvious that he may have found a way to help his family struggle no more.
In 2011, he worked his way into earning a scholarship for The Virginia Tech Hokies where he earned All-American and All-Conference honors throughout his career despite having two knee surgeries. Numerous NFL clubs dubbed Luther as one of the top defensive tackles in his class. After his now third knee surgery before the NFL combine in 2016 he went undrafted, but received a mini camp invite with the 2010 super bowl champions; The New Orleans Saints. Although he performed well in camp, a full tear to his pectoral muscle caused the club to sever ties with him. Guess what, God is still working. The BC Lions of the Canadian Football League signed him the next season. Yet he incurred another injury, a broken hand in the preseason caused him to play very little snaps in his 2017 rookie season. Luther is now currently looking to bounce back with a healthy second year in the CFL and help others in need who may have experienced similar struggles as him!
