Duane Starks started his football career at the age of eight in a local optimist club program, he became a star quarterback for Miami Beach Senior High, briefly attended Miami-Dade Community College and then played as a starting cornerback for the University of Miami Hurricanes. He entered the NFL, and memorably returned an interception for a touch down, securing a win for the Ravens in Superbowl XXXV.
Now he's retiring, and is basically taking over the city next weekend for an all-star bash. Guests scheduled to attend include Jamie Foxx, Morris Chestnut, Allen Payne, Meagan Good, Warren Sapp, Dante Culpepper, Edgerrin James and Drew Rosenhaus.
The weekend kicks off with a party Friday, May 15h at The Bentley Hotel.
