Kamalei Correa: Football and Faith Discussion with the Former NFL Linebacker out of Boise State University

2/16/2024
A MAJOR focus for me in 2024 is building out YouTube!! Please consider following me on YouTube and watching the show from there! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqHG9H7vljaLwQ765GIdBQA __________________________________________ Kamalei Correa was a standout linebacker when he played at Boise State University. He made a major name for himself, and made the very most of his situation, even when he was going through the coaching changes that occurred at Boise State during his tenure there. He was so good in fact, that he made his way into the NFL, being drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the 2nd Round of the 2016 NFL Draft!! In today's interview, we chat with Kamalei about his career!! There are some incredible insights from the athletic and business side of things, that you'll definitely want to hear! Our conversation also has a major focus on his Faith in Jesus Christ. I'd encourage ALL to listen to this. It's an incredible transformation story and one that I'm grateful Kamalei shared, because it can definitely help younger athletes to remember their purpose and remember Christ throughout their athletic journey!! We'll learn about the impact his Faith had (good and bad) during his career and what he's learned from that. The life lessons that have come with it! And how he intends to take those life lessons with him into the next phases of his life! This is an incredibly humble man who is super inspirational. He keeps things raw and to the point in our interview. He's straight forward yet super understanding! I hope you all feel his love for others in this interview. And I hope you are able to take as much away from this conversation as I did! I'm super stoked to share this with you all! As mentioned in this interview, Kamalei is taking some of his insight and knowledge and passions from the sports world, into the business world. He went to Barber School and is opening up his own shop "Novelty Salon" in Boise, ID! I would encourage anyone in the treasure valley, to go and check it out! Novelty Salon: https://www.instagram.com/noveltysalon/ I want my listeners to show some support for this amazing human being who is really doing his best to mentor younger individuals and bring a positive force to the community! ______________________________________________________________________ Come follow The Gametime Guru on the various social media platforms!

So glad that we connected because this is a POWERFUL ONE!! See, I've witnessed so many young kids who have a LOVE for sports, be RUINED by the politics of sports at a young age. Even kids as young as elementary school, don't truly understand how to react to the 'failure' in sports, so if they don't make a team, they end up STOPPING completely. And it's truly devastating and heartbreaking to witness. What I love about Tariq's story, is his pure determination to KEEP GOING. When his pride was hit after being cut multiple times in middle school, guess what he did? He kept working!! And you'll hear how his dad helped along in the process as well as he kept working on his game. Little by little Tariq kept getting better. Kept getting reps. Kept playing the game! Tariq ended up being able to play collegiate basketball and experience the ups and downs that come with that too. Today we will see and hear the story behind it all though! It didn't happen overnight, in fact it took a LOT of time! And I want you to be able to feel the emotions like I did when I was interviewing him! If you are a parent who might be listening and you have a young one who might be experiencing this and you're struggling on how to handle it, please take notes on this. I want younger kids to be able to continue enjoying the game they love because it brings so much peace and happiness to their lives.

But Baseball took over in his blood and he had to change course!! What is crazy about that though, is that he changed his course to baseball and ABSOLUTELY took the bull by the horns. Today we'll hear of his incredible journey which was FULL of ups and downs. He spent SEVEN years in the minors. Many people telling him that his dream of playing in the big leagues was over. But with the support of his spouse along with his relentless pursuit of his own dreams, he kept going and found himself playing in the Majors! We'll get to hear about his experiences through the minors as well as his time in the big league with the Houston, Colorado, and Cleveland! (trust me there are some amazing stories and life lessons along the way) What I love is how relatable he is to the younger athletes out there today! His story is one of passion and drive and overcoming failure! I want to encourage every young athlete to listen to this episode and take notes on the amazing insight Brandon shares. We'll also hear about the skillsets that he learned through Baseball that translate directly to his business life. Whether it be Real Estate or with his role at Athlete Narrative (which he is a VP of), he can directly translate some of these skills to the business world, and I REALLY want you to take note of this as well.

Kaden Johnson: Backup to Scholarship - Journey to JUCO Basketball

1/5/2024
As we jump into 2024, one of the BEST updates I have to share with everyone is my partnership with Athlete Narrative. I'm an Ambassador for them because I truly believe in what they're doing to help athletes with their branding and marketing of their own name, image, and likeness. If anyone has questions regarding this, please email me or DM me on my platforms, but using my link, you can receive a 10% discount monthly for the duration of your membership. Athlete Narrative is the FUTURE of branding for athletes!! I know this will be a MASSIVE resource for athletes AND parents! Checkout the link below!! https://ambassador.athletenarrative.com/shane-larson-join This episode is an INCREDIBLE opportunity to learn about perserverance from a current JUCO basketball player, who made his way to the college ranks after a LOT of hard work. We don't just say that, you're actually going to hear and see WHAT he had to do exactly in order to make his way into the college basketball world! I met Kaden when he was playing basketball at a local high school here in Idaho, in the city of Eagle. Kaden didn't really get on the court much at that time, but I always knew that he had the body type to play at the next level. And when I heard his story, I KNEW he had to be on the show! He currently is playing at Blue Mountain Community College in Pendleton, OR. Blue Mountain is part of the NWAC. Today you're going to hear what it takes to get there. You're going to hear about the hard work, daily consistency and discipline it takes, the adversity you may have to go through, and you're going to hear about the attitude and mindset required to reach your goals. Ultimately, what I hope you gain from this interview, is an appreciation for Kaden's story. This is a man who had a goal, and didn't allow anyone around him to deter him from that. In fact, he doubled down on himself, and bet on himself (something MANY of us can learn something about and apply more into our own lives). Please tap into this episode, and the only thing I ask is if you enjoy the interview, that you provide a review on Apple Podcasts or Spotify for us! Thank you so much!

Winston Venable: Former Boise State and Professional Football Player

12/22/2023
When I was serving my church mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I was two weeks away from returning home after two years. The Boise State football program was playing TCU in the Fiesta Bowl that year, and I had the chance to watch that game from Brazil. The game ended after a Winston Venable interception of TCU's Andy Dalton. And I became an INSTANT Winston Venable fan from there on out (mind you that's the first time I had seen him play) Today I get to interview Winston as we dissect his football career, which was FAR from ordinary. It was a path that not many know or understand. It was unique. He wasn't just one of those "5-Star D1 Recruits" coming out of a big time high school. He had to take the unique journey to get to the Division 1 Level of football and he'll explain that to you today. What's also interesting in this conversation is hearing his experiences and his perspective on professional football. He had a chance to play in the NFL for the Chicago Bears organization as well as play in the CFL. Find out why he says the CFL was an overall 'better experience' as you listen in to today's episode! Again, I always ask that you take the time to take notes on this. Please pay attention to this unique story from one of the all-time greats from Boise State University! __________________ Come follow The Gametime Guru on the various social media platforms!

The time has come, where we get to hear from yet another, member of the "House of Hoopers" also known as the Whitings. As you may recall, I've had the blessing and honor of speaking with Trent and Amari on episode 238 of the show: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/episode-238-amari-and-trent-whiting-house-of-hoopers/id1195653965?i=1000553709136 And then not too long later, I spoke with Amber Whiting, on episode 254: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/interview-with-amber-whiting-head-coach-byu-womens/id1195653965?i=1000568434066 Now is our chance to hear from Jace, who is currently playing basketball at Boise State University and is in his Sophomore year. This interview is jam packed with insight that will be FANTASTIC for younger athletes! Jace talks about his days growing up overseas while his dad was playing professionally, and what he took from being around his dad (Trent) all those years. Learning to respect and appreciate 'the grind' of the game. We also discuss the AAU experience for Jace and one of the turning moments for him as a basketball player that occurred. Another very important topic of conversation, is Jace's mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He served a two year mission preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ, and returned home and went to play college basketball. We'll discuss his mission and how it helped him in his journey. We'll talk about getting back into basketball shape upon returning home, and chat about how that transition went getting back into the regular world.

John Wheeler: Princeton Offense Guru

11/3/2023
John Wheeler has a very high IQ when it comes to installing the Princeton Offense into basketball programs and making it work for their personnel. I'll admit, for years, I was a major skeptic of the Princeton Offense. It seemed slow and behind the times in regards to the 'basketball of today' which typically is a faster pace, but after speaking with John and getting to know him better, it was VERY educational and insightful to gain his insight. In today's interview, please get ready to take notes. And if you are like me, and had pre-conceived ideas of this topic, please come to this interview with an open-mind so you can be open to learning something new. In our discussion John opens up about his time at Ohio State University where he actually was on the practice squad for the Women's Team?!! Yeah you heard that right. That's actually a thing, and this was in the early 2000s and he'll explain how that happened and how he even found himself in that position. But that was a moment in time that shifted John's career in a positive way. With mentors that have helped guide him, John found a passion for coaching and now, because of his expertise, he is able to help SO MANY coaches and programs with his knowledge. He has taken his knowledge to the internet and provides courses and trainings on the Princeton Offense. Get to know John today on the show and if you'd like to check out what he has to offer, I'd highly encourage you to checkout his site: https://theprincetonoffense.com/allaccess-optin You can follow him on Social Media as well: https://www.instagram.com/johnjwheeler/https://www.facebook.com/johnwheeler81 I hope you enjoy the episode!
