Episode 198: Walk It, Don’t Just Talk It with David Pollack

Former NFL player and University of Georgia standout David Pollack joins the show today. As a defensive end at Georgia, David was just the second Bulldog to be named a three-time All-American. Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker was the first.

In the 2005 NFL Draft, he was taken 17th overall by the Cincinnati Bengals. His NFL career was cut short, however, after he broke a cervical vertebra in a game versus the Cleveland Browns in 2006. The Bengals announced Pollack’s retirement before the 2008 season.

Pollack joined ESPN in June 2009 as a college football analyst. He has served as an analyst on the Emmy-Award winning “College Gameday” since 2011.

Today on the show, Eric and David discuss the injuries that changed their careers, the lessons they learned from them and much more about David’s life journey. Other topics include:

Be Great Where You Are

David’s “What If” NFL career

You Make What You Model

Daily Habits

And much more. Rate, review and subscribe to the show today!
