Michael Vick admits he would still be dogfighting

Michael Vick today admitted that if he had not been caught by the police, he would still be dogfighting to this day. 

So who got the quotes out of Vick, was it a reporter or trained journalist? 

No, it was a student at Juniata Park Academy that managed to eek the revelation out of the four time pro bowler.

The Philadelphia Eagle spoke candidly about his experiences at the school. In a video on NBC Philadelphia, the quarterback says, when questioned: 

"Honestly, because i said we gonna be open and honest, and we gonna have open dialogue and tell the truth, that yeah i probably would still be doing it (the dogfighting). It was significant for me to get caught, to have spent 18 months in prison behind me, for me to stop."

"i got caught, went through what i went through... so kids like you don't have to get through what i did."

What Vick did was completely inexcusable and vile, but he has taken his punishment and is voluntarily going through communities to warn about the horrors and make his peace with society.
