Not long before murder charges were brought against former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez, the 23-year-old spoke with Extra TV's host Maria Menounos about his career and desire to be a good example for the Latino community.
In April, during an interview at The Grove, Hernandez told Menounos, "I just try to be a role model and when I see Hispanics who look up to me I try to lead them in the right direction."
"And hopefully it gives a lot of Hispanics out there a drive to be able to be successful because there’s not that many Hispanics in the NFL and it’s just an honor to be one,” he continued.
