Episode 175: Never Quit Mentality with Nate Boyer

Nate Boyer is what many would deem a renaissance man. The Army Green Beret is also a philanthropist, humanitarian, and former football player for the Texas Longhorns (despite never playing a down of organized football prior to the Special Forces), and later for the Seattle Seahawks becoming the oldest rookie in NFL history at age 34.

Boyer and Fox Sports NFL Insider Jay Glazer co-founded the nonprofit organization Merging Vets & Players (MVP), with the aim of bringing together combat veterans and former professional athletes as each tries to redefine their sense of purpose after their respective uniforms come off.

Today on the show, Eric and Nate discuss trying new things, Nate’s never quit mentality and his incredible journey in the football world. Other topics include:

  • (7:30-14:10) – Nate’s career path from actor to Green Beret.
  • (14:10-25:20) – Special forces training. Never Quit.
  • (25:20-36:45) – Nat’s decision to play football late in life. Becoming the long snapper at Texas.
  • (36:45-49:45) – Starting MVP, similarities between Vets and former NFL players.
