Football is part of the fabric of American culture. We know the game; we know the athletes; but do we know about the hours of training that went into a victorious touchdown?

Undeniable is the training NFL athletes dedicate to making themselves elite performers. It’s not all physical; the mental aspect is equally important. NFL players are some of the best athletes on the planet, but they’re also some of the smartest humans around.

Connor Barwin, an outside linebacker (who has played for the Texans, Eagles and Rams), joins the HVMN podcast to discuss what it’s like to be a professional football player. Between quarterback sacks, Conner also helps build better communities through his non-profit organization Make The World Better.

In this episode, we explore:

  • The environment of an NFL locker room moments before stepping on the field
  • How sports science has evolved and what it’s like to play for different coaches
  • Why it’s important to get involved in the community as a professional athlete
  • Insight into the controversies surrounding NFL safety and recent protests
