overcoming adversity: life in the NFL & beyond

(feat. Mohamed Massaquoi)

This is an incredible interview with former NFL Wide Receiver & former Georgia Bulldog Mohamed Massaquoi.

Mo was a 2nd Round pick for the Cleveland Browns in the 2009 NFL Draft where he led the team in receiving as a rookie. Prior to that he was a 4 year starter at the University of Georgia under head coach Mark Richt and finished his high school career with an undefeated record over 4 years at Independence High School in Charlotte, NC.

In April 2017, Mohamed was involved in a tragic ATV accident that forced him to have 4 fingers amputated. He now wears a one of a kind prosthetic and has since become a motivational speaker and runs a charity that supports children that have experienced amputations and need prosthetics themselves.

the art of the double move:

(feat. Juwann Winfree)

Juwann and I met serendipitously through Twitter. Last season he ran a great double move post route vs. USC for a TD that “put him on the map” as he says. 
I saw the clip and broke it down on Twitter & Instagram as part of our #TeachTapes series without knowing anything about Juwann.
It was the first video of ours that “went viral” on Twitter with about 80,000 views a bunch of people started to tweet at me that Juwann was from New Jersey originally.
I messaged Juwann on Twitter asking him if he would like to do a podcast with me to follow up the video and after the podcast we agreed to train together for the first time when he was home in NJ in May 2018.

Fast forward to January 2019 & I just finished a week of training with him Colorado preparing for the NFL draft.

What you’re about to hear is the first phone conversation Juwann and I ever had. I was on the go at the time and recorded it all from my cell phone. (Excuse the audio!)

Juwann briefly tells us about his path from Englewood, NJ to the University of Colorado before we dive deeper into Wide Receiver play and specifically “The Art of the Double Move”.
