At the peak of his football career his weight was over 350-pounds but the now 240-pound Dantzler runs Ultramarathons. Dantzler walks us through his life growing up, building his identity around football and future highs that he would achieve that most only dream of. But just like any good story with highs, there are also challenges and lows. Sometimes your path in life can change in an instant like it did for Dantzler one day on a Jacksonville Jaguars practice field. Dantzler opens up about these challenges and how he took an inventory of his life...he took a look at his mental health and physical health. He knew that he needed to make some changes to get away from identifying as a football player and find his new mission, his new identity as a man. After taking inventory his his health, Dantzler went on a kick to lose more than 100 pounds. He also caught the running bug...but not the 5k kind...the marathon and ultramarathon kind!
