More Than a Pro
Levar Fisher is an awarded college athlete who became a successful pro, captaining not one – but two NFL teams, and later taking that leadership role to the stage as a sought – after motivational speaker. His amazing story has inspired audiences’ nationwide - receiving praise from notables like author and speaker, Les Brown and former Florida State Football Coach, Chuck Amato. Surprisingly, Levar’s rise to the top isn’t because he hasn’t made mistakes...but because he has made the mistakes and has learned how to channel them into positives.
Growing up in a small eastern, North Carolina town, Levar didn’t find a lot to keep him out of trouble or way from a Burger King. Subsequently, he received his first motivation for success from bullies who made fun of his weight and his dreams of playing professional football. A few years and lot of hard work later, Levar was recruited by North Carolina State University, attending on a full football scholarship. He made 1st team All - ACC selection in 1999, claiming that honor again in 2000 and 2001, as well as ACC’s Defensive Player of the year. He was a Butkus Semi Finalist for Best Linebacker in the Country 2000 and 2001, and a 2000 Bronko Nagurski Finalist (Best Defensive Player in the Country). You don’t become that good as a linebacker without a few tackles (try 492 for a career), and when you are really competitive, you lead the nation in tackles per game with (15.1, 166 for the year).
Today we're going to chat with Levar about his story, the work he does with youth and learn what it means to be "More Than a Pro."
