Nick Foles’ story is incredible.
I am (like many of you, probably) obsessed with hearing more about his path.
We now have a former grocery store bagger (Kurt Warner) and a guy who nearly left the game to become a pastor (Nick Foles) who have “Super Bowl MVP” on their resumes.
Kids: dream big. Anything is possible.

The “dream big, work hard, take risks” sentiment especially resonates as I make the first of what I assume will be one million steps in into my own consulting business. (Note: one million is an actual guess, not dramatic projection).
I read an article yesterday about Jordan Spieth’s early career decisions (long read, worth it). His road forked in a critical decision early on: one route was to play on an exemption into the PGA TOUR event in Puerto Rico versus a more sure thing Web.com event he’d qualified into in South America.
At the time, a peer called Jordan’s decision to take the TOUR road ‘idiotic’. He was wrong.
In Puerto Rico, Spieth was four shots off the lead going into the final round, and contended to the end of the event. His second-place finish set him up for another opportunity, which led into an incredible year on TOUR.
Spieth trusted his gut. It paid off.
In that same vein, I trust my 18+ years of talent and experience will line up with my passion for football. It’s partly why I’ve loved coaching and doing some of this work for my coaching friends for five seasons already.
And, thinking differently about how to improve football programs is already happening around the country. Annie Hansen is helping OU capture top recruits with her new ideas.
