Joe Lauzon: My Hometown - Parts 1 & 2

source: foxsports

Brockton born E. Bridgewater, Mass. resident Joe Lauzon takes us around his hometown.

The Fox Sports My Hometown video series takes the audience along as athletes give a tour of their hometowns, while telling stories of how their roots got them to where they are today.

"People say I have really good hips for Jiu-Jitsu," said Lauzon. "I think that is 100% from riding horses, you know? Feeling how the horses moves, and sticking to the horse, I think was a big part of the whole thing."

"The way we were raised, being around my dad, being around the shop, I've definitely learned - figure out where I want to be, and figure out how to get there."

Voted up for the details.  What a cool story.  The Lauzon family sounds like a great one!  I'm so glad they get to enjoy their son's success.

I went to school with them, and he lived 2 miles down the road from me. Became friends through other friends after going to hang out and watch WWF PPV's and have EPIC wrestling matches on his trampoline in 7th grade.
