With the first round (which is really the second round) of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament set to tip off in less than an hour, you may find yourself in need of last-minute bracket advice from a man who knows the game.
Enter former Redskins running back Ladell Betts.
Betts played for the Redskins from 2002-09, primarily backing up Clinton Portis during his lengthy career in Washington. His best season came in 2006 when he rushed for career highs in carries (245), yards (1,154) and touchdowns (four).
Since his career ended with the New Orleans Saints in 2010, he has partnered with former teammate Eddie Mason to instruct fitness in the greater-D.C. region. Betts’s brainchild is the ‘MASE Kids Fit4Life‘ program, which is intended to provide youth with a well-rounded developmental program intended to instill lifelong values in kids.
When Betts isn’t enriching the lives of the next generation, apparently he watches basketball, because he has nine-plus minutes of advice for your 2013 NCAA Bracket (via the fine folks at PickFactor):
Duke vs. Indiana for the national championship game? Not much of a bracket-buster there, but maybe he knows something nobody else does.
