CLEVELAND (AP) — London Fletcher looked down and traced his unlikely path to football stardom.

From more than 1,000 feet above his hometown, Fletcher gazed out one of the Goodyear Blimp’s gondola windows and memories flashed before him.

Below, he could see his childhood home on Giddings Road, where life was often difficult. Not far away near the southern shore of Lake Erie sits Villa Angela-St. Joseph, the high school where he starred as a linebacker and point guard on two state title basketball teams.
