Womack just led Alabama Technical College to the Junior College national championship football game and earned first-team All-American honors.
But things turned sour when the Warriors were hammered by East Mississippi Community College 39-21. The school, especially its fair-weather fans, put the loss on Chance's shoulders. Things got worse when Chance caught his girlfriend, Cindy Swift, cheating on him.
