Aloha Mr. Johnson, and Tim,

This may be one of the best Podcasts ever for a young athlete to listen to. Jerrod, your answers to those questions at the end of your speech were powerful statements: "Free play and structure." Wow. There was so much to unpack in your speech.
I think some of the messages came out so fast, and were so subtle: "doubt creeps in, and that is hard to mentally shake off. Because you know you can't run because of an ankle. But doubt goes deeper." Oh, yes.
REST. I am so glad you said that. And I loved when you corrected Tim, when he asked if you would have taken another month off, knowing what you know now. You said: "I probably would have taken two or more." REST. Yep.

Your discussion of the difference between natural talent, and learning how to throw correctly- again, it showed the technical structure needed to get to the next level. Exposure to wining, losing, injury, pressure, decisions - your ability to handle negative press, and people pushing you to succeed - all of that was exposure too.

Great talk, many many many little pears of hard earned wisdom in it. Timing is so important. You have a defined goal, making sure that no kid gets "lost" playing quarterback. I would suggest you also think about adding Professional Speaking to your crowded schedule. Take out a few "so's", slow down just a tad, and your talk could climb to the next level. Graduate Level Speaker- in your parlance.

You might be a young man, but you have learned the lessons that wise old people seem to have learned. The honest and direct answers you gave, those were heard by many a young person, and hopefully their parent too!

Thanks again, Smiles, Kevin
