The Life of Dad Show - Episode 107 - Isaac Bruce

Art Eddy brings on David Guest to chat about his new column at Life of Dad called “Film School for Dads”. Art asks David how he came up with the idea for this column, what inspired him to teach film school, and what teams he cheers for in the big leagues and the NFL.

They also bring on former St. Louis Rams great Isaac Bruce.

Isaac played 14 seasons with the St. Louis Rams and two years with the San Francisco 49ers. During his 16 NFL seasons, Isaac was considered one of the best receivers in the NFL. He was a world-class route-runner, very elusive and highly intelligent with great hands and a tremendous overall threat. He was the first of three second-round draft selections (33rd overall) by Rams in 1994 NFL Draft.

When he retired, he was No. 2 on the NFL’s all-time receiving yards list behind Jerry Rice and No. 5 on the NFL’s all-time receptions list. He had more than 1,000 career receptions and more than 15,000 career receiving yards. His #80 jersey was retired by the Rams in 2010 and he will be eligible for the NFL Hall of Fame in 2015. Bruce scored a 73-yard touchdown with pass from QB Kurt Warner with under two minutes to play in the game to give Rams’ 23-16 victory in Super Bowl XXXIV.

Now after his time in the NFL, Isaac spends time with his family as well as with his foundation. Isaac established the Isaac Bruce Foundation which reaches out to youth and teaches them at early age the importance of a healthy lifestyle by focusing on programs in the areas of health, wellness, nutrition, fitness and education.

We spoke with Issac about his time in the NFL, winning a Super Bowl, fatherhood, and the work he does with his foundation.
