I agree with "observer," first in the news it was about Purify and his troubles with alcohol and now Rey. One would think that getting into the NFL and wiping Humboldt off your boots would something in itself to keep one sober. Apparently not. I pray that this is indeed a life changing event, but I highly doubt it knowing first hand were these boys are coming from.

Almost everyone is so full of hate. What's wrong with you people? Oh I know what's wrong with you... You can't stand anyone that is successful, or better than you. I'm sure you will say that Rey isn't better than you... Blah, blah, blah... Dave, you are just a racist and I'm sure your life isn't anything worth writing about. Observer, all you do is observe, and no one knows who you are, and no one will know you when you are gone. Jason, your comment just let everyone know how immature and uneducated you are.

I don't know Rey, but from your comments I know a little about you fellows; A bunch of young, hateful, jealous, unhappy men. Get a life, don't you have anything better to do? Wait... You don't.

It's great that he's "100 days sober" because sobriety starts with that first day. I hope he keeps his nose clean (no pun intended). He's not just representing himself, he's representing his whole family and our whole community. If he falls, I'm sure ppl will ridicule him but, with that, they'll be ridiculing everything he represents! Rey, remember - it's not just YOU when you fall....it's all of us.

This is awesome and very inspirational. My brother who's a die hard fan of football in general, had a major addiction problem. I couldn't believe it because it was my brother and didn't think things could have gotten to the point that it go to. It was scary. I did some research and everyone I knew was recommending http://www.unityrehab.com . They informed me on how caring and compassionate their staff were, along with being able to cater to anyone's situation. It sounded too perfect but I checked it out with my brother, who realized he needed help, and everyone was right. Due to Unity Rehab, not only were they able to help my brother but they were also able to teach him how to prevent from relapses. The outcome was positive and in relation to this article I'm happy to see that he's going to be 100 days sober.

Rey, way to go, we're glad your turning it around, making a new start ... but it's a long road. Didn't treatment center people warn you about being a "100-day wonder" and going public? Man, stay humble, stay sober.

Good job Ray. Every day sober is a new adventure. You are a big part of other peoples sobrity too. There are thousands of people pulling for you. As you know 100 days is 100 days and every day is a mile stone. You can beat back the booze one day at a time. All you have to do is stop digging and you wont hit bottom.

When you are addicted to a substance or alchohol 100 days is along time for the addict...the cravings should slow and now it will be more conscious decisions to drink or not. Rey when you get that urge go to the gym and work through it , become addicted to your sport and engrose yourself in it.

I wish Rey would come back to Eureka High and speak frankly about his ordeal.

John Jason's story needs to be told more often, and needs to be followed more often.

The sad fact is the catchy phrase, "Friends don't let friends drive drunk" rings hollow because the phrase displaces the responsibility from the person who needs to take control and transfers it to the friend. People with a drinking problem need to take responsibility.

Rey should hire a life coach. He needs to realize all that is good in his life.
