NFL analyst and former NFL coach Herm Edwards delivered a talk to the athletes at Texas Christian University recently, and offered them some solid advice for their futures. Edwards had gotten into a bar fight a few years ago that could of disrupted his career, however, he has since seen the light and is devoted to helping others not make the same mistake that he did. In addition to that, he incorporated his famous “Play To Win The Game” speech in his talk as it has been a well-known feature of his. The NFL star humbly warned the students to “not be that guy” that everyone looks at negatively and that no matter what challenges arise, things can be used to excel instead of hold them back.
The Fort Mammoth, New Jersey native attended both the University of California and San Diego State where he made a good name for himself as a player. After graduating from SDSU with a degree in criminal justice, he played for nine seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles from 1977-1985. By 1987 he redirected his career into more of a coaching path and took on the role of a defensive backs coach for San Jose University for two years. Over the course of his coaching history, Edwards was in charge of directing the Kansas City Chiefs, New York Jets, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but retired after a second stint with the Chiefs from 2006-2008.
Edwards recently spoke to the students at TCU about keeping their heads on straight in order to ensure that they have a fulfilling and rewarding life, and to avoid any disasters possible that happen to come their way.
