ESPN's Rick Reilly caught up to Edwards, who promised 100 eighth-graders that he'd give them $10,000 toward college if they carried at least a 2.5 grade-point average, did 15 hours of community service and were exemplary students. Seventy-nine of the 100 in the program met the requirements.

"That's how it goes sometimes in life," Edwards said in a video interview with Reilly. Watch the complete story below.
