become the architect of your dream life
Listen, I'm not going to sit here and tell you that attaining success is easy. It's not. It takes long hours, consistent dedication, battling inner doubts, and a whole lot of other things that would make the normal human quit.
But I'll tell you what: it's worth every single ounce of effort you put in, 100 times over.
-Edgerrin James, NFL Hall of Famer
success doesn't just happen overnight
The come up
Edgerrin grows up in Imokalee, Florida, and takes a quick liking to football as he sees it as the path to support his family. "Maybe you got it out the grass. Maybe you got it off the pavement or whatever. But in Imokalee, we get it out the mud my boy." - EJ
The gold teeth era
Edgerrin commits to University of Miami and continues on to play 3 seasons for the school. He is the only running back in school history with two consecutive 1000+ yard seasons.
The Big leagues
Following 3 seasons at the University of Miami, Edgerrin is drafted fourth overall by the Indianpolis Colts in the 1999 draft, the result of years of dedication and consistency.
The NFL Years
Edgerrin spends 11 years in the NFL, a majority of those years being with the Indianoplis Colts. He is selected 4 times as both a Pro Bowl and All Pro player.
Golden Jacket & Empire Building
Edgerrin retires in 2009, and directs the same tenacity he had on the field into business endeavours. EJ is inducted into the NFL hall of fame in 2020, and continues to build his budding business empire to this day, on a mission to help others do the same.
