I was talking to a friend yesterday who was invited to baseball training camp years ago only to turn it down and get a good job. He regrets the decision he made as he admits to being young and impatient. If football wasn't his passion and dream, then Horton made the right choice; otherwise, he'll look back with regret that he didn't try.
