Pierre Desir is in the giving mood.
The Colts defensive back donated a weight room to his former high school, Francis Howell Central in Missouri. The “FHC Performance Center” will open during the Colts’ bye week in October so Desir can attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The facility includes squat racks, weights embossed with the high school’s logo and a turf track that can be used to push weight sleds. It also includes murals on the walls of athletes in different sports and the motto “P.U.S.H.,” which stands for “Persistence, Utilize Opportunity, Sacrifice, Hustle.”
Desir graduated from Francis Howell Central in 2008 before attending Lindenwood University. He was the first Francis Howell Central player to ever be drafted into the NFL.
