From the NFL to New Found Life – Sharing Our Story!

The other day I got a call from one of my friends that played with the Tampa Bay Bucs asking me and several of the guys to come out to fellowship and if we didn’t mind sharing our story and testimony of the game and how good God has been to all of us.

Sharing Our Story

We all had a great time recalling so many memories of both good and challenging times however the best part was relating how through it all God had and still has a plan for us to do work and give Him the Glory.

One of the big highlights for me was before they introduce you to the crowd, they had the Monday Night Football theme song playing and Wow this got your blood flowing. My saving grace was the fact that I am still in a walking boot recovering from my torn achilles tendon however that song will never get old. I am both humbled and honored to be one of the few people that got an opportunity to play Sports on a Professional level.

Fast forward to 2015 and it’s great to see guys still in good physical and mental health and allowing God to move in their lives and grow them higher spiritually. I am so grateful to have lived this experience, come out a better man and share the lessons I have learned from those “old” playing days.

Happy New Year 2015

Every New Year’s day morning, as I seek to embark on new journeys, new dreams and new territories, I’m always blessed to come back home to Tyler, Texas and remember to invest a little time at a place that not only gave me the confidence and willingness to grind but also some true lifelong friends to do it with. John Tyler High School, I will never forget what the people you provided there did for me and so many others.

A Message to the NFL Football Players Cut from the Team!

What’s NEXT?

NFL football player getting cut

This video is my message to those NFL football players cut from their team. There is nothing like practicing and playing with some of the NFL Superstars and good players, developing friendships, signing autographs, traveling to different cities playing against guys you used to watch on TV and video games.

Now the next thing you know, you are talking to the coach about why you will not make the team and he hopes you well in the future. After the Limo or taxi ride to the airport for a flight home, you are back to square one with your NFL Pro playing career in jeopardy.

Please watch the video here:

If you only receive one idea from this video, then it has been worth my time to create it.
I just want to encourage you to keep the dream alive and give it all you got to make it back on the field. However, if by chance things don’t work out, God has given you a mind to dream again and continue making things happen off the field. Your faith, work ethic and other talents got you to the highest level and you can take this same drive and determination and do other greater things with it.

This is Your Dream, Keep God 1st and Give it all you got!
Make it HAPPEN!!!

I am Ready to Play and They are Talking About a Redshirt Year!

Now do the Redshirt option have you mad enough to Transfer?

After your final high school game and during spring football recruiting season, college coaches from all over the country have tracked you down and told you how much they like you and how you can help their football team win games. Now the time has come for you to report for the start of the season and you are all “gung ho” about playing on game-days for this football season however the same coaches are talking about giving you a Redshirt this year.

This brief video is a must watch to help you with that Redshirt option:

Did you learn a nugget or two from this. Make sure you view your options and keep in mind that college football is big business. You have to approach things away from the white lines and goal posts, like it is, a business!

Young athletes tend to let their passion spill over and become emotional and personal and I hope that before you do this, take time off with those in your inner circle to vent and get things off of your chest before you allow the coaches to see that side of you.

There are a lot of mental and political games going on that may or may not be in the team’s best interest. Quite frankly, all you want to do is play ball and this is understandable, however and most importantly, sit down and take into consideration the big picture which includes you, the team and coaches involved, not just this year but for years to come.

In most cases at many college football programs, coaches are not there for the entire time that you are there and they want you to be on their team however they are caught up in a “Must Win Now” business and if they don’t see your abilities meshing well with the team at this current state, then they will use this redshirt option for you to get better.

I hope you get some value out of this video and post and I do wish you well in your college athletic endeavors.  and no matter what, give your best effort everyday because those 4-5 years go by so fast and your work and your character will last much longer!
Make it HAPPEN!!!

I Can Relate to Kevin Ware’s Leg injury

This is a personal post that I thought I’d share to help someone going through injury or a major physical setback on what they love and enjoy doing. Like so many others over the weekend, I took some time to watch the NCAA Men Basketball tournament and had a chance to see the Louisville vs Duke game and view Kevin Ware’s leg injury as it happened and I immediately had a flashback to what happened to me some 21 years ago. While playing for the Atlanta Falcons, I had suffered a slight ankle break that caused me to eventually take an injury settlement and leave the team and fortunately have my football rights signed over to the Ohio Glory of the World League.

Action_Jackson...OhioGlory_001_(2)Playing for the Glory allowed me the chance to get back into game action and regroup for the NFL again. We traveled to Barcelona, Spain to play a game and during that game I suffered a dislocated foot, broken ankle and fibula all on one play that would eventually be the end of my playing career. Even though my leg was damaged, the injury looked extremely worse than what it was because my foot was going the complete opposite of what it should be and I can tell from the look on the guys faces that it was pretty bad.

However, the flashback that I had when I lay on the football field after suffering that injury, was not so much the pain that I felt but my reaction to what was going on around me. With all of the chaos going on with the trainers working on me, the coaches and players all watching with through their hands over there faces and even my own thoughts and feelings of panic, was starting to affect me. A memory that never fades was the peace and stillness that came over me as I lay on the field. It was my right foot that was broken however I calmly asked the doctor that was cutting through the tape and material on that injured foot if he could cut the tape off of my left shoe because I needed to get something important to me.

Everyone kept saying that “Hey, it’s your right foot that is injured”, however I kept insisting that they would cut the tape off of the left shoe. During my playing career I would always write on a piece of paper, the Bible Scripture, Philippians 4:13 – I Can Do All Things through Jesus Christ which Strengthens Me” and I would wrap this up with tape and put it in my sock. I would tell myself that no matter what happens on the field, good or bad, that I would still be standing on God’s word. Even though this injury would be the last time that I would ever step on the field again in actual game competition, I knew that if I could just get my hands on that piece of tape with those words on it, everything would be alright.

Now here is where it gets better because just like Kevin Ware as he lay on the court in excruciating pain, he had enough will and emotion built up in him to tell his teammates and coaches to “Go Win the Game!” This is what hit me the most because as soon as I heard this mentioned by Coach Pitino, I recalled what happened during our game. As I was laying on the stretcher to be taken off the field, the guy (linebacker) that landed on my leg came up to me pretty distraught and emotional and he kept apologizing and saying that he couldn’t play the rest of the game. I remember telling him in a firm voice to get back out there on the field and play! Keep playing and don’t worry about me. If you can’t play the game for yourself, then you better go play it for me! Even though I lay there in pain and with thoughts of this possibly being the last time I played, I truly believed that the strength and fire in that message that came out of me to that guy was from God.

Kevin Ware seem to be a good-hearted young man and I pray that the young man’s leg heal again to the point where he can continue playing and living out his dream. As an older man now I can advise him and others that are rehabilitating from injury, to give everything he has in this rehabilitation process and surround himself with positive people to get through the isolation periods and minor setbacks. I remember when I returned home after surgery, one of my football buddies (Larry Centers – Arizona Cardinals) left me a message on my answering machine that really encouraged me through the rehab process and I will pass it on to Kevin and others and that message was, “I feel sorry for that leg because I know you are going to work the hell out of it!” That’s what I did too!

Also I want to encourage him further that for some reason, if his leg will not heal to the point of resuming his basketball playing career again, one thing that’s not broken is the ability to dream again. A year after my injury and at this present time, thanks be to God first, the doctors and medical staff, my family and close friends, I am walking and running fine and I’m still dreaming and working hard on my dreams. Yes, I get a little emotional thinking back on those times however I’m at peace because I can truthfully say that I practiced and played the game with everything I had in me. So go to work on that leg and keep dreaming young man, keep dreaming because You got plenty of life and achievements ahead of you!
Sincerely,

Patrick Jackson
