Episode Description

We all grow up with aspirations of living out our wildest fantasies, like hauling in the game winning touch down reception in the Super Bowl to building the next billion company or marrying the women of your dreams. Either one would surely make you the envy of all your peers, but there's a sacrifice associate with each one that some are not willing to make. How far would you be willing to go and what would you be willing to sacrifice for successful. On today's show we sit down with former Denver Broncos running back, 2-time Pro Bowler and 2014 UM Sports Hall of Fame inductee, Clinton Portis. We recap the recent 30 for 30 documentary 'TheU Part II' and see if the Broncos current stable of ball carries has what it takes to live up to their predecessors. Pac12 writer Jeff Hauser gives his personal accounts from The Heisman Trophy presentation. Also we find out why Oregon could bring an end to the SEC dominance and hoist up the coveted National Championship Trophy.

Growing up in the inner city of Miami has presented me with many obstacles to overcome. No matter how bleak things might have looked or what odds might have been stacked against me, I never stop fighting for what I want. I went from a college walk-on at Morris Brown College to a scholarship student-athlete at Georgia Tech. It was imperative for me to display my athletic abilities on a larger platform. This mindset has pushed me to chase my dream over 3 continents by way of the CFL, NFL Europe and finally the NFL. I took that same approach to my education when I gave up a $50,000 work-out bonus to return to Georgia Tech and earn my undergraduate degree in Business. I was presented with an award from the NFL because of my scholastic achievements. As an undrafted player in the NFL I’ve seen my fair share of highs and lows in my 10 year career. The knowledge gained on and off the field has led to my continued work as a Sports Analyst. I can recreate the passion I had on the field as an analyst to help undrafted players find success in the NFL. Maintaining the proper attitude with perseverance has allowed me to continue my pursuit for perfection as I embark on what is sure to be a great 2nd career.

I continue to use my celebrity to bring awareness to outside causes and community organizations. This allows me to mentor future leaders of tomorrow, aspiring athletes and help troubled youth. Nothing is better than knowing that you’ve had a major impact on someone else’s life.
