HAVERFORD — Professional tennis great Serena Williams once said, “It doesn’t matter what your background is or where you came from. If you have dreams and goals, that’s all that matters.”

When Bo-Dean Sanders of Havertown was a young athlete growing up in the South, he began dreaming of playing college football one day. As fate would have it, his childhood dream soon turned into reality. Sanders recently recorded his journey from a young student playing football in a high school in Jacksonville, Fla., to becoming a football player at Villanova University in his recently released book, “Race Against … Against Race: My Journey of Diversity and Inclusion Through Sports.”
