Bowler to Baller: The Story of Pro QB Luis Perez

With the NFL football season just around the corner and college football having just kicked-off (kinda), I have a very special guest on the show today. Luis Perez is a guy I’ve trained for a few years now and he has one of the most fascinating stories you will ever hear. He did NOT play high school football, he won the Harlon Hill Trophy (Heisman Trophy for D2), and is now knocking on the doors of the NFL.

This episode is a must-listen for all athletes, kids, parents, coaches, sports fans, entrepreneurs, and high-performers who have a dream and have to overcome the odds. He literally went from 9th on the depth-chart in college to standout starter. And the rest is history. 

If this episode doesn’t give you chills, check your pulse. And when you’re all done, please be sure to share the episode with someone who needs a little extra inspiration and motivation. Enjoy the show and please be sure to tag us on your social media.
