Pooch Hall Reveals JAIL STINT At Bayou Classic!

Over the weekend, Lance Gross and Pooch Hall were among the celebrities in New Orleans for the Bayou Classic at the Superdome. And they did a bit of good between all the parties.  During a panel where they shared their life experiences with today's youth, Pooch Hall revealed a jail stint from his past.  Deets inside.....

Over the weekend, Do-Gooder YBF stars Lance Gross, BET's "The Game" actor, Pooch Hall and "ATL" star Jackie Long hosted a celebrity panel for The "Achieve One" Youth Empowerment Summit during the annual Southern University and Grambling State University Bayou Classic Weekend.

During the panel, the actor told the 500 students how they overcame set backs as black actors, told students to stay focused and out of trouble and urged students to never give up.

Pooch Hall shockingly revealed,

"Not too many people know this, but I had a run in with the law years and years ago where I was jailed for four months. I was in the wrong place at the wrong time and with the wrong people. It's important that you have good influences and surround yourself around good people because not everyone gets a second chance like I did."

And Lance Gross added,

"One of the biggest struggles I faced growing up was being a shy kid. I had to learn to overcome this and although I'm still a shy guy I haven't let it hold me back from opportunities."

Jackie Long urged kids to write down their dreams and stay focused.

"It's important that you write down your goals and dreams whatever they may be, said Long. Then once you do that you start knocking them off one by one and if you get delayed don't give up. Keep going."

Also at the panel were Lamonte' Cole; Principal, speaker and guest host, Sevetri Wilson; non-profit & celebrity charity consultant and developer of the "Achieve One" Celebrity Teen Summit Tour, Edward "Ted" James; summit panelist, Louisiana State Representative and Attorney,  Film and TV Actor; Lance Gross, Kim Turner; Outreach Director and guest panelist, The Game Actor; Pooch Hall, ATL star; Jackie Long, Dr. Calvin Mackie; nationally renown public speaker and motivational speaker, Kwame Asante; Attorney,  "Achieve One" Celebrity Teen Summit Creator and Executive Director of The Achievement Academy.

Pooch greeted Miss Southern University

And he and Jackie posed with the SU cheerleaders.

Fab times!  And congrats to Grambling State University for copping that football title this weekend.

"Fione" is phonetically

"Fione" is phonetically spelled wrong. It's actually "foine". You don't have to thank me.

Love what they doing, but I

Love what they doing, but I have to say this. There was no mention about education in this entire do good piece. Until we embrace the dream of being the best educated culture or race we are regulated to be and stay where we are. I hopes should not only to be the best athletes and best entertainers, but the best CEO's, teachers, researchers, firemen, policemen, or politician or anything else we aspire to be.

I understand what you are

I understand what you are saying, but it's kind irrelevant to preach about education to college students. They've took the next step in the education world and are strivng to accomplish their goals already.
