Episode Info: o a community. Trent discusses the unique journey that Quarterbacks take because there is a great burden on them for leadership. Elite 11 QBs will not only go to the NFL but will have a significant impact in their community. Trent discusses the polarizing dynamic of being an ESPN Analyst for 9 years. He loved the ability to see his family and stay involved in the game, but eventually, the network created everything to be political and dramatic. ESPN became like the big news networks, and his job wasn't fun anymore. Driving down the field: Trent Dilfer has lived a life that most people could only dream of: 14 years as a quarterback in the NFL, Pro Bowler, Super Bowl winner, ESPN Analyst and married with 3 daughters that are NCAA student athletes. But it hasn’t always been roses for Trent. He has gone through his fair share of adversity both on and off the field: from being released by the Ravens after winning them a Super Bowl and playing back-up to a rookie QB in Seattle to losing his 5 year old son to heart disease and more recently realizing he was just being “comfortable” in life without making an impact. At age 47, Trent was in retirement but sensed a deep longing for something more. He told God he would accept whatever opportunity came next, not knowing what that would be. Getting back into the lane of life: That opportunity came in the form of an offer to coach high school football at Lipscomb Academy in Nashville, TN. After listening to his internal voice and consulting with his family, Trent moved from Austin, TX to Nashville, TN to take the job. Previous to accepting this position, Trent had turned down 10 different pro and college jobs to spend more time with his family. While his intentions were pure, he now realizes that he had gotten too comfortable and challenges all of us to “take inventory every year to determine if you're too comfortable”. Trent is now focused on inspiring kids and giving back. He says, “I had great coaching, that's why I'm passionate about coaching.”   Links to Additional Resources: Violets are Blue - Natural Skincare [Sponsor] Laird Superfood - Code: Markp20 [Sponsor] ...
