NFL Legend Darren Sproles – The Lil’ Giant Who Always Believed He Could

Meet legendary NFL Running Back Darren Sproles. He carved out an illustrious 15-year career and I believe he will be a Hall of Famer in a few short years. And he only stands 5’6” tall. While I had the opportunity to train/coach Darren for 11 of his 15-years while playing for the San Diego Chargers, New Orleans Saints, and the Philadelphia Eagles, I got to know him both as a man training to be a world-class athlete and a man who prides himself on being a great father, husband, and human being as well.

What’s also special about this episode is that Darren doesn’t seek out the limelight and he doesn’t do a ton of interviews, podcasts, and shows. And today you will hear why. But one thing I guarantee you is that you will feel his spirit, get ignited by his heart & soul, and you’ll be a huge “Sprolesy” fan by the end of this episode.

Specifically, on today’s IMPACT SHOW, Darren and I talk about:

– Retirement and what it’s like for him.

– 5’6” tall; How did he get into the NFL?

– What training did for Darren and why he always went so hard in the weight room.

– Darren shares his fondest memories of training and his favorite workout partner.

– His top NFL memories.

– How he has dealt with stuttering from the age of 5 and what helps him now when he begins to stutter.

– What’s next for Darren Sproles?

I believe you’re going to really enjoy today’s show. Darren reveals things you probably didn’t know about him and shares what makes him tick. Additionally, he shares where his effort, discipline, sacrifice comes from and how it helped him have such a long career.
