Nypost : Le’Veon Bell’s rise: Why he is wired for monster Jets year


Le’Veon Bell’s determination showed itself at an early age.
Bell’s mother, Lisa, remembers him at 5 years old climbing up a chair to the kitchen counter to the refrigerator to get a cookie she told him he couldn’t have before dinner.
“Whatever he set his mind to, that’s what he did,” Lisa said in an interview last week. “He was a determined kid, a determined young man and now a determined man.”
That determination helped him go from a lightly recruited high school player to an All-American at Michigan State and an All-Pro running back in the NFL. It is also that determination that kept him off the field last year during a contract standoff with the Steelers when Bell was resolved to get the type of contract he deserved.
“At first, it was difficult,” Lisa said. “He played football and never missed a season from the age of 4 to the age of 26. It was different. He said, ‘Mom, I trust you with everything you tell me.’ He said, ‘This is football and you have to trust me. It’s not about just football. It’s about the business.’ ”
