Former New York Jets football player Vernon Gholston provided a group of Jersey City youth some inspiration on Sunday when he spoke at the Educational Gilmore Community Learning Center.

The small group of kids, ranging from grammar school students to high schoolers, listened the one-time first-round draft pick discussed the importance of education and taking advantage of opportunities. 

The Educational Gilmore Community Learning Center is located at 135 Monticello Ave. in Jersey City. The center is run by Frank Gilmore.

Gholston, who played college football at Ohio State, was the No. 6 overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft and he played three seasons with the Jets.
