TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Tucson's Levi Wallace will report to Buffalo Bills Training Camp this week to continue down what has become an unlikely road to the National Football League.

Wallace had no scholarship offers coming out of Tucson High School in 2013, but that did not stop him from walking on at the most dominant college football program in the country, Alabama, and becoming a starter on a national championship team.

If there is a road to a starting spot in the NFL it will have to come much the same way.

Wallace went undrafted in April and must earn his way in the league as a free agent.

The 23-year old graduated from Alabama with a Business degree. He is currently working on a second undergraduate degree in Consumer Affairs and plans on getting a master's degree in Business.

It will allow him to make good on a promise to best the two degrees his father got in college.

Our David Kelly sat down with Wallace to chat about all things football, his relationship to his father Walter, an Air Force vet who died of ALS in April of 2014 and the tragic unsolved murder of his best friend and Tucson High football teammate De'Antae Fuller.

In Part 1 the focus though is Wallace's favorite sport, football.
