Kerby Joseph was excited when his call finally came on Friday night and it was Detroit Lions general manager Brad Holmes.

“The conversation was wonderful. I’ve always wished for this moment … so to meet this milestone in my life,” Joseph told the Orlando Sentinel. “I’m just filled with so much joy and I’m so happy. It’s hard for me to talk right now because I just want to dance and scream and do backflips.

Joseph and his friends waited more than three hours until his name was called after 11 p.m. Friday night during the third round of the NFL Draft. when holmes called the former Jones High Star, he had forgotten all about how much he had moved around at the Kissimi Vacation Home, which was rented out by his family for his draft party.

The Lions selected the University of Illinois Safety No. 97 overall.

“I wasn’t going crazy. I didn’t lower my confidence. I didn’t lower my self-esteem. I didn’t lower anything,” Joseph said of the wait. “I feel like it inspired me. All I know is that we will all be on the same ground at the same level, so … I have to give my all … This time also not 100% but more than 1,000%. “

“If you believe in me, I’m going to make you believe in me more than you believe in yourself, so I’m going to give them my all.”

Joseph’s father, Decius Joseph, who cooked a large Haitian meal for the attendees, was quite happy for his son, and hoped that Kerby would stay inspired and grounded in the faith.

“I feel great. He goes to the NFL,” said Dacius Joseph. “Since he was a little boy, he told me he wanted to play football.

“So now, God make it true. It’s real now. Thank you Jesus. Without Jesus, it shouldn’t be here.”

And now he has to switch allegiance.

“I was always the Miami Dolphins,” he said, “but now it’s not the Dolphins. It’s the Detroit Lions.”
