When The Cheers Fade - Life After Football: A chat with Jarett Dillard and Thomas White
Things came full circle for me when I had a chance to sit down with former Rice stand-out and NFL player Jarett Dillard. Jarett was one of the first athletes I covered when I started my radio career here in Houston. His Rice team featured one of the most dynamic offenses in the nation and he eventually went on to play in the NFL. It was a blast talking to him about his days at Rice, the NFL, and eventually life after football.
I also had the pleasure to sit down with former Baylor stand-out and NFL player Thomas White to talk about his football career, life after football, and how he won the D10 decathlon while managing a career and family.
Big thanks to our friends at The D10 for a chance to speak with these great guys. The D10 is a decathlon of events that you’ve seen at the NFL Combine mixed with events that test your athleticism. The Houston D10 is on November 3rd at Rice Stadium so start training and fundraising because all the money raised is going to help out MD Anderson Cancer Center Children’s Cancer Hospital.
