The Life of Dad Show - Episode 207 - Jordy Nelson

Art Eddy and guest host, Patrick Quinn, talk about what class they would teach if they were to get into the education field because they bring on Green Bay Packers wide receiver, Jordy Nelson, who did some substitute teaching last year while he was recovering from injury.

Nelson is a Super Bowl Champion, Green Bay’s leading wide receiver and most of all a great dad. Jordy and his wife, Emily, lead by example by their involvement with charities in both Wisconsin and Kansas, including the Nelson Family Community Foundation that was founded in 2014. That foundation benefits families in need in his farming community in Kansas and Young Life, a Christian-based youth organization connecting area youth with Christ.

We talk with Jordy about being a substitute teacher, football, and fatherhood.
