Rams William Hayes, Chris Long to explore homelessness in ESPN piece

William Hayes is living the good life these days. The former Winston-Salem State star is heading into his eight NFL season as member of the St. Louis Rams. But he recently got a look at what life is like on the other side of the tracks.
Hayes is set to appear in “Life On The Streets,” an ESPN feature.  
From a WSSU press release:
“In an effort to get a closer look at the hardships homeless people in America endure every day, Rams defensive ends William Hayes and Chris Long took to the streets for 24 hours with no place to sleep or eat, no connection to the outside world and only $4 each. ESPN’s SC Featured followed their story.
Haynes and Long wore second-hand clothing and makeup was used to help conceal their identities. They were outfitted with small cameras and microphones, and an ESPN crew observed them.”

“Life On The Streets” will debut on Sunday during the 10 a.m. Sportscenter.
