It’s great to have 7-year NFL QB Jameis Winston on the podcast today as we are talking all things football, training, mentorship, and life. Jameis is the heir apparent QB for the New Orleans Saints after spending the last year under the tutelage of Drew Brees and the previous 5-years to that with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

  • How growing up with 20-kids in the house helped make him who he is today
  • How to embrace the struggle
  • What the world needs to know about Jameis Winston
  • What Jameis is most looking forward to in the future
