Yahoo! Sports Looks at Miami Dolphins' Jorvorskie Lane

As part of its continuing series "Outside The Game," Yahoo! Sports recently spotlighted Miami Dolphins' rookie fullback Jorvorskie Lane, whose return to the gridiron has not only given him a stronger outlook on life, but has also made him a role model for his family.

A standout running back at Texas A&M University, Jorvorskie Lane was switched to the fullback position after ballooning up to over 300 pounds during his senior year following the death of his grandfather. After a subpar senior season, mostly due to his weight gain, Lane went undrafted and for two years Lane found himself working as a furniture deliveryman.

However in 2012, he got a second chance when his former college coach, Mike Sherman, signed with Miami Dolphins and helped him turn his life around. Lane lost the weight and worked to prove himself to Sherman, head coach Joe Philbin, and general manager Jeff Ireland.

In the segment, Jorvorskie gives insight into to his life changing diet and how his family have show their full support.
