While his college football teammates were shaking it up and shutting down bars, Dayton football hero LaVar Glover was sharing a bedroom with the 15-year-old brother he was trying to set on the right path.
Glover, now the director of self-sufficiency at Community Action Partnership, talked to Amelia Robinson about his unconventional life for the latest episode of the “What Had Happened Was” podcast.
They dished about card games and Glover’s decade-long football career. He was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers before being signed by the Cincinnati Bengals and the Detroit Lions before playing for the Arena and Canadian Football leagues. They also talked about his childhood in Dayton and how he coached kids in Kettering and gave up his foster program. Now Glover tries to help people build bridges to successful futures.
