"I'm honored to host these young men and their families during one of the most important moments of their lives." said Ware. "It's been eleven years since I was drafted into the NFL, but I still remember that moment like it was yesterday. I'm ready to prepare them for that moment, and when it comes to season, I'm sure they'll come up with a style and stay true to themselves; that's what I did."
