One hardship that Ed overcame is the fact that he is extremely dyslexic. Growing up in Baltimore, he was labeled as slow due to the fact that being dyslexic was not recognized at that time. All of his young life he was told that he was not college material and should seek a trade. It was not until his senior year at Florida State University that he was diagnosed as being dyslexic. Even though it took 10 years longer than most students, at the age of thirty-one Ed received his Bachelors of Science in Education from Florida State University.
