Derek's Story

Derek Hatcher was an exceptional quarterback in Clay County, Florida from 2005-2009.  After the start of a successful college football career, Derek sadly passed away from a drug overdose in his college dorm room in 2016.  Derek struggled with addiction for three years prior to his death, and during that time he shared his story in an effort to prevent others from making the same mistakes he made.  "That One Line" is a video that highlights Derek sharing his message in hopes of saving others from enduring the nightmare of addiction that he did.  In these clips, he explains how that one line changed his life forever.  The Derek Hatcher Foundation continues to spread Derek's message.
