Today’s episode gives me greater hope for the future of our nation’s professional athletes. My guest, Garrick Jones, tells us how his professional football league, the SDFL, is poised to not only become a blueprint for how leagues and teams should treat their players, but potentially transform professional sports across the board.
As Commissioner of the SDFL, Garrick has taken what he learned as a player and a businessperson, and along with his partner, President Byron Clay, allows the SDFL to serve its local communities with pride and dedication, and strives to provide fans, families, and friends with a memorable game experience. What gets me fired up about the SDFL, is that it provides high-quality professional developmental football during the summer/fall season while introducing on field development, critical for the futures of the players once they leave the game.
In this episode, we talk about the highs and lows of being a professional athlete, the importance of being fully prepared for the time you have to leave the game you have completely immersed yourself in, and a “Hit Your Mark” round of questions at the end that will leave you laughing, especially the part about pranking the rookies! Make sure to tune in, as you will soon be hearing quite a bit more of the SDFL and Garrick Jones!
