Welcome to this week's The 411.  He just finished his rookie season for the San Diego Chargers and he made a visit this week to an area high school.     
Louisville native and Central High grad C-J Spillman talked to the students about his struggle to getting to college and all of the peer pressure he faced.  Spillman inspired the students by motivating them to dream..  The 411 asked the football standout for his Super Bowl prediction and he says that if he had to root for someone it would be the Colts because he knew someone on the team.  

For independent movie lovers and aspiring filmmakers it’s the Derby City Film Festival..  You will have the opportunity to view more than 45 films.  Six of those films are by Kentucky filmmakers.  The event is from February 19th through the 21st.  For additional information in about registering and show times go to
