Todd Davis - LETS GO CHAMP!
We are so pumped to have Todd Davis as this week's podcast episode guest.
Fans of the NFL surely recognize the nameas Todd is the Starting Middle Linebacker and Defensive Signal Caller of Superbowl 50 champion Denver Broncos. He also happens to be a former team mate, and close friend of Ryan; and is currently active in real estate investing.
Todd started as a undrafted free agent out of Sacramento State, a "Small" University. For those who are not familiar, an undrafted free agent has a snowflakes chance in hell of making the team as the 90 man roster is cut to 53 every fall. After 4 years Todd not only made it through that gauntlet, but has emerged as a pivitol part of the broncos defense and earned himself a nice littel contract this year because of it. If that not fighting adversity and the odds, i'm not sure what we can bring you that portrays that better than this.
In this interview, Ryan and Todd talked about his off-season preparations, the mental game in the NFL, his passion for real estate, hard work, and many more interesting subjects in this quick but informative episode.
I apologize in advance if this podcast makes you forsake your current NFL ties and jump on the bronco bandwagon; its hard not to cheer for a guy like Todd on the Field and in Life.
