Wesley A. Lyons, Jr. is from North Braddock, Pennsylvania, where he and his brother Devon, were raised in a split home by their mother, Marva LaMar and father Wes Lyons Sr.  Wes attended Woodland Hills High School, where he earned academic and athletic honors, and excelled at football during those years.  After graduating in 2006, he received scholarship offers from many colleges, and decided to attend West Virginia University.  There he continued his education and became a valuable member of their football team.  He graduated a semester early in 2009, and pursued his interest in football on a professional level.  His passion and hard work paid off — Wes was picked up by the New York Jets for their off-season, and eventually signed to play with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Wes is a new author, who focuses on speaking to the youth and being a role model. With conversational candor that young athletes and older sports fans alike can understand and enjoy, Wes gives an inside look at his childhood in Pittsburgh, takes you behind-the-scenes of the college recruitment process, and delves deep into his world of football and family — a world that created a professional athlete and an inspirational voice.
