From the inner city of Norfolk, Virginia, to a starting position in the NFL, Arthur Moats has lived an incredible life full of twists and turns. His enthusiasm and exuberance for getting the most out of life is contagious to those around him. Fans began cheering his name because of his reputation for being a hard-hitting linebacker.
