Rich Take On Sports

Show Notes:

Rich Spotlight: Sam Acho Became involved with being a podcast co-host after Willow Creek Church Pastor Steve Carter invited him to participate Loved the idea of “Relevant Is Doing A Sports Podcast” and knew he wanted to be involved Sam never had a sole dream of playing in the NFL because he never really believed it could become true First noticed as a football player after him and his brother Emmanuel attended a camp in Southern California although they didn’t know that it was an invite-only camp USC Head Coach Pete Carroll and assistant coach Ken Norton, Jr. quickly noticed him and would offer him a scholarship Attended the University of Texas with Head Coach Mack Brown because Texas never pressured him to commit and it was close to his hometown of Dallas, TX Still thinks that the National Championship game against Alabama would have been different if Colt McCoy wouldn’t have gotten hurt in the opening minutes of the game Thought he would play his whole career in Arizona after being drafted by the Cardinals in the 4th round of the 2011 NFL Draft A broken leg changed his path in Arizona and he would eventually sign with the Chicago Bears and then signed a two-year extension with the Bears in March 2018 Sam’s passionate about encouraging people and helping motivate people which is why he continues to pursue opportunities as a speaker Part of what he loves is also being on TV after he had his TV show in Arizona, “The Sam Acho Show” CTE is something that he does think about each day as he plays but he will continue to play until he doesn’t have the passion anymore He’s been involved with Living Hope Christian Ministries since he was 15-years old with mission trips and continues to give back with annual mission trips to help provide medical care in Nigeria Loves sports because you get to be on a team with people that you may have never been able to meet Words of Wisdom from Sam Acho: “Seek God whole-heartedly and you will find Him.”
