Join us for S2:EP11 of the Legacy After the Locker Room Podcast as Reggie Rusk, former NFL athlete sits down with our host Kayla Bradham to share his story and how he is helping the next generation of athletes.
Reggie Rusk played football for the University of Kentucky and continued his football career as an NFL cornerback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Seattle Seahawks, and San Diego Chargers. Reggie learned early what it takes to become successful. He knows first-hand what a disadvantage it can be to not have the proper information and resources. Lacking the proper NCAA requirements, he was forced to go to the junior college route prior to playing at the University of Kentucky, but determination, commitment, and an open mind helped him succeed before, during, and after pro sports.
Reggie has been assisting young students for the past 15 years, giving them instruction on how to be successful on and off the field. He has helped so many athletes reach their fullest potential, many of them attending universities such as Texas, Texas A&M, Houston Baptist, Texas state, Kingsville Texas, ETBU, Mc Neese Univ, North Western, Notre Dame, Univ of Houston, Navy, Air Force not to mention, multiple smaller universities and junior colleges.
