Jonathan Ogden
“Jonathan Ogden will go down in history as one of the greatest “offensive lineman to ever play the game of “football. Playing at 6 foot 9 inches and 335 pounds, Jon dominated both at “UCLA” (as a 2-sport athlete) and with the “Baltimore Ravens.” His list of accomplishments are simply amazing including most recently as he was inducted into the “National Football League 2013 “Hall of Fame, the first “Baltimore Raven to do so as well as the youngest player to ever have his bust in the Hall of Fame. Jon was also the first-ever player to be drafted by the newly formed “Ravens franchise back in 1996 and played a tremendous role in the Ravens’ 2001 victory in “Super Bowl XXXV as well as serving as the honorary team captain for the team when they won it again in 2013.

If you think his recognition stops there, pick up a printed copy of “The Blind Side, by “Michael Lewis,” where Jon is featured in many sections of the book as a man to reinvent and establish the Tackle position, protecting the Quarterback from being hit by an opposing player from the QB’s opposite side (his blind spot).

Selected as an “All-Pro Football Playerand playing the offensive tackle position, Jon won the annual award 9-times and made the “Pro Bowl 11-times in a 12-year career. Although most fans know him as a ferocious football player, one not to be reckoned with, Jon is truly a remarkable man whose awareness and balance of family, education and dedication to being a “multi-sportathlete far exceed any “Super Bowl Ring, “Hall of Fame Induction” or other major accomplishments he ever received. This interview includes a special introduction from “Who Are You: The Life Lesson of Sports Podcast Host,” “Rob Elwood,” as Rob shares personal stories of growing up and playing on the same high school football team together back in “Washington, DC.This conversation also touches on a few pointers from Jon about what parents and coaches should be looking out for when children play the game of football. Stories include his personal opinion on the “concussion issue as well as the “NFL’s stance to be untruthful about it to the players back during Jon’s career.

Jon has rightfully earned “Hall of Fame Status in Canton, Ohio, but it is rare to hear such a dominating athlete speak in such a sincere, down-to-earth and thoughtful manner as he does in this inspiring, informative and motivational “can’t miss” podcast interview.

To further add to the excitement of it all, Jon explains how the entire “Ravens team looked behind their bench, prior to kick-off, and saw “Hulk Hogan giving the “Ravens the patented, “The Brother” Thumbs Up- a surreal yet memorable moment. It was definitely then when Jon recognized that he and his teammates were playing in a game bigger than themselves. Listen to exclusive access about how nerves during the “Super Bowl may or may not wear off as the game goes on , especially on the largest stage in sports.
