TAMPA, Fla. -- The time had come for Quinton Flowers to say his final goodbyes to his mother.

Nolita "Nancy" Mans didn't let on to Flowers or his brothers that cancer was slowly killing her until it became cheap basketball jerseys too obvious to hide. At the end, cancer stole everything, including her eyesight. A grief-stricken Flowers ncaa basketball jersey walked into her hospital room, held his mother's hand and told her, "This is your youngest son. "

"I love you, " she said through tears. She then asked Flowers to call his high school football coach. Antonio Brown raced to the hospital.

"Please take care of my baby, " she told him. "Make sure he goes to college. "

She closed her eyes.

"That was the last thing she told him, " Flowers said recently, wiping away tears.

Flowers had lost his father, Nathaniel Sr., years earlier in a drive-by shooting when Quinton was 7. Now reality hit: At age 17, he was an orphan.

More tragedy was to come. Nearly three years later, on the cusp of his first career collegiate start at South Florida, his oldest brother was shot and killed in Miami.

All this tragedy, this is what Flowers bears every minute of every day. There are times when he calls home and breaks down. There are times when nobody understands what's behind his smile.

What he wants people to see is the dynamic dual-threat quarterback he has become. He is already one of the most prolific players in USF history, having college basketball jerseys passed for more than 2, 000 yards and rushed for more than 1, 000 in 2016. college football jersey No other collegiate signal caller in the state of Florida has ever done that -- no, not even Tim Tebow. But Flowers has much, much more to accomplish, and he wants people to know why he keeps on going.

Flowers' father was grilling and watching a Miami Dolphins game when he was shot in a drive-by shooting outside their home. The bullet was meant for someone else. Too young to remember much about his dad or the shooting, Flowers recalls his mother worrying about how she would support her family.

Nancy Mans went back to high school and got her GED. She took a job working in the cafeteria at her children's elementary school.

Her brother, Nick Mans, provided extra assistance and became an everyday presence in the kids' lives. As Quinton and Nathaniel Jr. started getting into football, Uncle Nick made sure to attend every game they played. Quinton began to blossom as a quarterback and chose to attend Miami Jackson High, where he wanted to help turn the program around and play for Brown.
