After spending a year and a half in prison, Vick is teaming up with the Humane Society of the United States to bring an anti-dog-fighting message to young people.

At Covenant Baptist Church in Southwest D.C., Vick tells a small group of students about his dog-fighting days. He says he would fly home every week for the fights. "For what reason? I don't know, to this day," Vick says. "It was something so pointless."

Jonathan Hewitt, a 14-year-old Dunbar High School student, says he thinks Vick isn't just apologizing to regain his superstar status. "I don't think he's saying that just to make a lot of money," Hewitt says. "He probably really is sorry and probably trying to change his life around."

Last weekend, Vick played in his first regular season game since leaving prison.
