Join us for S2:EP12 of the Legacy After the Locker Room Podcast as Jesse Bradley, a former professional goalkeeper sits down with our host Kayla Bradham to discuss his soccer career, a sickness he incurred overseas, advocacy for adoption, and the work Jesse is doing now!

Jesse Bradley is a former professional soccer goalkeeper who is now a speaker, pastor, and author. He graduated from Dartmouth College with a degree in Psychology and two Ivy League titles. He has played in the US, Scotland, and Zimbabwe. While in Africa he took a prescribed medication to prevent malaria which built up toxic levels in his system and ended his career. He was fighting for his life for a year, and it took ten years to fully recover.

Jesse brings a message of hope to millions of people across the world. He has written three books, is a passionate leader, and connects well with a wide range of people. Jesse and his wife Laurie have four children and live in Seattle Washington where he partners with the Seattle Sounders for faith and family night.
