Current Baltimore Ravens tight end Hayden Hurst appears to have had a perfect life.

However, it’s been anything but that for this 26-year old.

Hurst has battled depression and anxiety.

Hurst’s demons bested him in his second season in the minors with the Pirates down in Bradenton, Fla.

The star baseball player of Bolles found himself in a position he had never been in before as he struggled to dominate the game he loves.

It proved to be too much.

Hurst says he was drinking every day.

After deciding to quit baseball Hurst walked on the football team at the University of South Carolina.
