Did you know Sam Bracken was once a homeless teen in Las Vegas who loved to run on and off the track?*

Ultimately his passion for sports earned him a full-ride football scholarship to Georgia Tech. A friend’s family, on whose sofa he’d been sleeping, gave Sam an orange duffel bag to pack his few items of clothing. His life was forever changed. ODBI curriculum is based on the nonfiction book about his life titled “My Orange Duffel Bag: A Journey to Radical Change.
