 "Sometimes, when I'm tired on the field, and I feel like I can't go anymore, I just think, what if he had one more breath? What if all three did?" said the football player from Alabama.

Another two added on the show are Witney Carson and Milo Manheim. Manheim rose to fame when he starred on Zombies, a Disney movie. The 17-year-old actor is the show's youngest contestant.
