“The one thing I learned more than anything is being in a room – whether it was [with] players, coaches, trainers, cooks, doctors, and equipment managers – is that everybody that walked through that building was the very best at their craft. I think being around that type of mentality at 21, 22, 23 years old kind of formed the way I look at things. They had a major impact on me.”
