ICANDY: MAURICE LEGGETT Future, Family, and Football

Very seldom, do women run into the sexy athlete whose values are centered on family and keeping his woman happy. Luckily, here at Kontrol, we found this brown-skinned bachelor, in rare form, single and willing to meet his perfect match. Maurice Leggett, is an NFL free agent, but has recently been signed to the Utah Blaze in the Arena Football League. The six-foot statuesque player em- bodies the family man who’s goal-oriented, driven, straight forward and eventually would like to settle down with his better half. This 26 year old, born and raised in McKeesport, Pennsylvania, has been playing football since he was a tiny tot and wooing the ladies since his college days, but says he wasn’t always the “eye candy” type. “It’s all still new to me, but it’s been like that since college. I used to get picked on in school growing up, laughs Maurice. To this day interviews and photo shoots – if you put a camera to my face, I get shy. I’ve always been taught to act like I’ve been doing this.”

Although very modest, the football star is not soft-spoken and passive when it comes to his business. Between gearing up for his first season in the fall with the Utah Blaze and modeling and acting, Maurice also runs his own entertainment company called Almighty All Stars Entertainment. Since 2009, he’s been working with artists to create great mu- sic. Ten years from now, Maurice wishes to be still in the NFL winding down his career. He wants to coach professionally and continue to develop his company. His many endeavors are very important to him, but near and dear to his heart are his two beautiful children.

Fatherhood has definitely given Maurice a new perspective on life. “It’s the best thing in the world, exclaims Maurice. I’ve always been helping out, looking out for kids, so now I have my own. Now, I get to teach them all I’ve learned and all the mistakes I’ve made and turn it into a positive. ”With his family oriented perspective on life, ambitious nature, and good charm, Maurice proves to be the complete opposite of the stereotypical athlete who is acclaimed to not only be players on the field but in relationships as well. He’s a laid-back guy that prefers staying in rather than going out and channels his sensitive side through his music and acting. So why is he single?
