I had the incredible opportunity to sit down in the studio with Retired NFL QB, and ESPN Analyst, Ryan Leaf.
Ryan Leaf spent his college career with the Washington State Cougars, where he was a finalist for the Heisman Trophy after his junior year. He was selected as the second overall pick by the San Diego Chargers in the 1998 NFL Draft behind Peyton Manning, he played for the San Diego Chargers and the Dallas Cowboys between 1998 and 2001, and also played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Seattle Seahawks. Ryan’s career took a turn when a video went viral of him arguing with a reporter in the locker room but this was just the beginning. Ryan shares so openly how this one event, altered the course of not just his career but his life. Ryan is remarkably self reflective and insightful. He talks about his challenges on and off the football field from battling addiction, going to rehab to serving time in prison, and how being of service to other inmates created a turning point in his life. He is vulnerable and courageous as he holds nothing back. His story of redemption and commitment to a life lived well is something all of us will learn from.
