Meet Mickey Grimes

Today we’d like to introduce you to Mickey Grimes.

Due to unfavorable circumstances grew up in the L.A. County foster care system. Found a family in the gang life. To avoid any more trouble moved to Moreno Valley during high school. Came to a very loving foster family who helped keep me out of trouble, and by senior year broke CIF record in track. Continued to play football and run track in Riverside Community College and Abilene Christian University. To later run for Nike and competed at the Olympic level. Since retiring, he has found his way to starting a clothing line Grimes by Mickey Grimes.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
No……. many bumps along the way.

What were you like growing up?
Growing up, private one on one situations very outgoing, but in public a very shy person. Had plenty of friends and was a nice guy in general. Football was the main focus, just never got the full chance to play in the NFL.
