In this episode, I chat with Patrice Rene a defensive back who was at one point ranked #1 football player in Canada. In fact, he was recently drafted to the CFL 21st overall by the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, and someone who had decided to return to the NCAA to play out his last year of Eligibility with the Rutgers University Scarlet Knights.
But that's not all, Patrice is also one of the co-founders and brand ambassador of Sportsmxn, a company that helps branding local elite athletes so they can focus on what they do best.
In this episode, Patrice and I chat about his journey making the jump to the US to play football and all the support and help he had making that happen, we talk about the lowest of lows rebuilding after a devastating ACL tear injury, as well as the transferrable skills and identity that football has taught him.
This is one of my favourite podcasts because football is a sport I am truly passionate about myself. I think you're going to really enjoy this episode whether you're an athlete or not because of everything that the sport has taught him outside of the sport
