When her son, Colt, went to the field at the Dallas Cowboys’ training camp in 2012, his parents knew they had a gift.
They didn’t know how much of it Colt would need.
For a boy who grew up in poverty, the prospect of going to the pros was a dream.
But it was a difficult one.
Colt suffered from severe post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, and the condition has plagued him since childhood.
“It’s one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to deal with,” said Heather Colt, a Dallas-based publicist who works with athletes to support their families.
“I can’t imagine life without it.”
The family’s story has been told before, but Colt’s is one of many that highlight the challenges of post-war American life.
“We had a great deal of hope that he would come through,” said Colt’s mother, Carol, who is also a writer and editor at The American Dream, a magazine that covers the life and work of athletes.
In June of this year, Colt took part in the NFL’s Veteran’s Day festivities. “
But I’m still trying to find the right words for what happened.”

In the video posted on Facebook by a fan, Colt’s mom asks for prayers for her son’s recovery and her son says, “I’ll be OK.”
“I’ve seen the way he was living the life before, the kind of life he was leading,” she says.
“He’s a very good guy, and I think he just needed to get his life back on track.”
After Colt’s NFL debut in 2015, his life was suddenly transformed.
After two years of struggling with PTSD, his mother decided to get a diagnosis from the National Center for PTSD and Anxiety Disorders, or NCPAD.
She was told her son was suffering from a severe form of PTSD called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
The diagnosis would cost her a lot of money and time.
“This was one of those times, when you had to make a decision,” Carol Colt said.
“What do you want to do?
Do you want the world to see you suffering?”
Colt’s father, Joe, was also diagnosed with PTSD.
He went to an intensive outpatient program for PTSD, which cost him $25,000.
The costs of treatment are typically paid by the NFL.
At first, Colt was not sure what was going on.
“My father was diagnosed with this, and my mother was diagnosed.
But he had a vision. “
But he had a vision.
Colt wanted to start a nonprofit, the Colt Family Foundation.
The foundation would help veterans get help with education, job training, and job counseling, and it would also support veterans who needed housing. “
We want to bring people back into the mainstream,” Colt said at the time.

Colt’s dream would become a reality.
“After I saw the first video of him in the offseason, I knew this was it,” Carol said.
Colt, who was a running back at Michigan State University before he enrolled in the Dallas-Fort Worth Cowboys, had a dream to play in the pros.
He had worked hard to get there, and now he had an opportunity to prove it.
Colt started out as a runningback, then moved to quarterback, but he quickly changed roles.
“There was a lot more emphasis on the offensive side of the ball, which is what we wanted to do,” Colt’s wife, Tracey, said.
He also wanted the team to be successful.

A year after his initial injury, Colt started working out for the Cowboys.
He felt great about himself, but it was still tough for him to get back to his normal self.
“A lot of times, people don’t get the opportunity to go to the NFL,” Colt told ESPN.
“People get the chance to go and make a living off their football, and they can be a superstar and a household name.”
He also needed to show the NFL that he could do it.
After his first NFL practice, Colt ran the 40-yard dash in 4.55 seconds.
Colt didn’t want to let anyone down.
He was one pick away from a starting spot.
Colt and Tracey had always dreamed of playing in the National Football League, but the NFL was still a very different league than what they’d grown up in.
Colt was a receiver, not a quarterback.
“As a receiver I don’t think I’ve seen anyone as athletic as Colt, and that was something I didn’t see when I was growing up,”
