Welcome to the very first episode of Life Beyond the Game!
"Sports are such a big part of all of our lives. From the big plays to the unforgettable games, They continue to inspire us in unimaginable ways. But what happens to the athletes, the warriors and heroes of our time, when the game is finally over and the sport they love, and worked their entire lives pursuing greatness at, continues on without them? How do they cope with the transition? How do they find purpose, reclaim their identity, and work towards a vision of the future? As a former professional athlete, playing in the NFL for 8 seasons, I know the unique challenges that these athletes face. On this podcast these athletes will share their stories and how they navigate... Life Beyond The Game. "
The intention for this podcast is to provide a space for former professional athletes to share their stories and how they are coping with the transition out of sports.
In this special episode, Joe breaks down his own career in the NFL and the life lessons he learned along the way. Why he chose an early retirement and how he has found new meaning and purpose as he has transitioned out of the league.
