Former Jacksonville Jaguars player Richard Collier, who was paralyzed from the waist down in a 2008 shooting, is pretty busy these days.

He's not only working out and spending time with his foundation, The Spirit Strong, he's got his hands full with twin sons born April 10.

"Sometimes I just hold them and look at them and I'm just amazed," Collier told the Florida Times-Union's Vito Stellino. "I think God for everything. I've been blessed. It's almost six years since I got hurt and I couldn't even imagine the life I have right now. I didn't think it could get any better, but it keeps getting better."
