Flashback: Hernandez Wanted to Be 'Role Model' to Hispanics

Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez said he wanted to be a Hispanic role model in an interview with Maria Menounos in April on “Extra.”

“Um, I just try to be a role model. And when I see Hispanics who look up to me, I try to lead them in the right direction. And hopefully it gives a lot of Hispanics out there a drive to be able successful, there’s not that many Hispanics in the NFL, and it’s an honor to be there.”

Nearly two months after Hernandez’s interview, he was charged on Wednesday with the first-degree murder of Odin Lloyd and is currently in jail after having been denied bail two times.
