Blue Bet on Himself, Now Reaping Rewards

He bought a one-way plane ticket from Lincoln to New York City, in search of an internship and uncertain of what the future would hold.

Today, Anthony Blue, the former Nebraska cornerback whose career was beset by two major knee injuries, lives in Brooklyn and travels the world as a multi-media artist in photography and animation, while also DJ-ing parties with popular artists like Migos and Big Boi. He’s photographed model and actress Amber Rose and singer-songwriter Solange Knowles, the younger sister of Beyonce’. He’s traveled to China to shoot a project for Adidas.

His gamble played dividends.
