What are the biggest highlights of your career?
The biggest highlights of my football career are being a two-time team captain in college. It’s getting drafted as the first draft pick in 30 years from Missouri State University. It’s making the NFL playoffs three times and playing for nine seasons.
What advice do you have for any non-professional or student-athletes that strive to reach your level of success in sports? How does nutrition play a role in this?
You have to make sure you have goals! Come up with a plan to get to those goals. Without a goal, you are like a ship without a destination. You can have the best ship in the world but that doesn’t matter because you don’t know where you’re going. I would also tell them to focus on their habits. Your results are a lagging measure of your habits. You are what you repeatedly do.
