Jan Stenerud
Jan Stenerud is a retired kicker for multiple different “footballteams. Jan was born in Norway and enjoyed watching the “Olympics“, playing soccer and generally spending time doing physical outdoor activities. His kicking abilities were eventually brought to the attention of  “Jim Sweeney” and he was offered Jan a “football scholarship”.

Jan found that kicking the “footballworked well enough the way everyone else was kicking (with the toe) but one day he asked if he could try kicking it with the side of his foot, like a “soccer” ball. After that everything changed, Jan found himself going to different stadiums and kicking longer distances than anyone before. Jan went on to play for  “Kansas City Chiefs, and the NFL’s “Chiefs, “Green Bay Packers” and “Minnesota Vikings“.

Now retired and inducted to the “Hall of Fame“, Jan is a great example of how the right person with the right innovation can truly shake up the sports world. Listen in as he shares his story and the life lessons he has learned from sports.
