Eddie George had an impressive career in the NFL. He is only the second NFL running back to rush for 10,000 yards while never missing a start, joining Jim Brown. Only Walter Payton has started more consecutive regular-season games than George’s 128. In addition to the Heisman Trophy, George won several NFL Rookie of the Year awards in 1996, and was the Tennessee Titans’ starting tailback until 2003. George won the 1997 AP’s “Offensive Rookie of the Year” honors as well as four consecutive trips to the Pro Bowl from 1998-2001. He was selected in the first round by the Houston Oilers/Tennessee Titans. Eddie led the AFC Champion Titans to Super Bowl XXXIV in 2000.
Eddie didn’t stop challenging himself after he left the NFL. He received his MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University in Chicago. He is also an actor and most importantly a father.
We had the great privilege to chat with Eddie about his time in the NFL, what motivates him now, and his views on fatherhood.
