As the Atlantic City Blackjacks set to make their debut at Boardwalk Hall this Saturday against the Columbus Destroyers, we got a chance to meet with one of their newest players, Donte Rumph.

The Defensive Linemen came into the studio to share how important game one is to him, after being released by three NFL teams and more, he is having fun being a part of the inaugural Blackjacks season.

You instantly hear about Rumph's love and passion for the game, which steams from growing up without his mother and being raised by his grandmother, who recently passed.

Listen to learn more about Rumph's journey from the University of Kentucky, the NFL, being a part of HBO's Hard Knocks and how he ended up here in Atlantic City with the Blackjacks.

There are still tickets for the home opener available. Come support the Atlantic City Blackjacks as they begin the campaign to bring a championship to Atlantic CIty. Check out all the ticket options for single games and season tickets HERE.
