“One thing a lot of people don’t know, that I want to share with you guys, is when I was 22 years old, I came to this city for the first time, I was playing in the Canadian Football League, playing my first pro football game I was playing for the Calgary Stampeders, we were playing the BC Lions, I was so excited. Two days later I got cut, dreams shattered, sent home with seven bucks in my pocket.”
“I realized that playing in the NFL was the best thing that never happened, because it got me here. So just have faith, and just keep that in mind and keep plugging away.”
