Have you ever played the lottery? Our guest, Tom Crabtree not only played the lottery, but won! Growing up he had his sights set on playing in the NFL. Crabtree played college football at Miami University before becoming an undrafted tight end with the Kansas City Chiefs.
He didn’t meet instant success. Although he made it through training camp with the Chief’s they cut him because they didn’t believe he was ready to take the field game one. They then resigned him to the practice squad where he continues to work his ass off until week three when they cut him permanently.
Then he is sitting with his family for a Thanksgiving meal when he gets a call from the Green Bay Packers where he & his teammates achieved the ultimate reward by defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV in 2011.
He discusses how hard work, & yes even luck allows you to reach your childhood dreams. He also opens up about his favorite date night with his wife & why they support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
