New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis returned to his hometown today to give a pep talk to students at Aliquippa Elementary.

Mr. Revis, who is developing a reputation as one of the best defensive backs in the National Football League, spoke to students in a pair of assemblies. He encouraged them to begin preparing for their future now.

"The sky's the limit. You guys can be anything you want to be. It starts right now."

He and his family founded Nerih Inc., an Aliquippa nonprofit to provide leadership development and dropout prevention help to city students.
