A half million subscribers today…WOW, what can we say but Thank You for joining us on this journey! In appreciation of you all pivoting with us, We are doubling up today- giving you two great guests, in two different shows for a hour plus of entertaining content and conversations.
As our NFL Training Camp Tour continues, we made a special Pivot Stop in Latrobe, PA, the home of the Pittsburgh Steelers Training camp and as Ryan would say, the winning inspiration to our Pivot colors! While at St. Vincent’s college campus, We spent time catching up with everyone’s favorite Coach Mike Tomlin at practice and then sat down with not just one star but two- the Defensive Player of The Year, TJ Watt ANDDD Pro Bowl Running Back Najee Harris! Both conversations filled with football talk and off the field life conversations about the men they are today and the experiences that shaped them.
Entering his second year with the Steelers, Najee Harris is setting high expectations to exceed last season’s numbers and terrorize opposing defenses. Najee told Ryan, Channing and Fred, “I want to be the one who keeps defensive coordinators up trying to figure out how to play against me.”
Reminiscing about his draft party in a homeless shelter, Najee shares how he grew up in the Bay Area sharing how he will forever be indebted to how he was raised along with the loyalty and trust of those who help shaped him. Sharing some pointers and veteran advice, Fred opens up about some of the smaller things he can do as a running back that will have a big pay off in the end.
Ryan is very candid about how Najee is perceived around the league by both teams and the media which has caused him to double down on always being his authentic self no matter the circumstances. Channing and Najee bond over playing for Coach Nick Saban although both speak on two entirely different experiences.
Knowing the offense will be in a growth pattern with a new starting quarterback this year, TJ accepts the pressure for the defense to step up this year and help slow down some of the high powered offenses, especially in their rival AFC North. Growing up in a football family and following in the footsteps of his brother, future Hall of Famer JJ Watt, TJ talks about how living in the house with his two brothers helped mold him into the player he is today as well as the leader he strives to be on and off the field.
Channing Asks TJ if he thinks he has his brother in talent and success on the field and in an emotional response, TJ takes the time to remind us of how good his older brother really is and all that he’s accomplished in his career.
Acknowledging that their team came up short last year and finished off with a record less than the standard of Pittsburgh Steelers football, Najee and TJ both share the sediment to get back to the post season and be Super Bowl contenders this season.
