Biography:

Sports Motivational Speaker Eddie George always knew he had the mindset to be a star; he just needed a way to channel it on the football field. When most students play high school athletics at a prep school it is to increase their marketability and up their statistics. Eddie went a different route. His high school days gave him the ability and discipline he would need to further his football playing career.

Sports Motivational Speaker Eddie George, born in Pennsylvania, made the decision to transfer from a regular high school to a military school in the tenth grade. Many students make this transition in both basketball and football in order to give themselves an extra year of eligibility, but Eddie was not thinking about this. The type of lifestyle they were expected to live at the school was very attention-grabbing to Eddie and he then decided to stay for his fifth year. The decision to stay did wonders for his football career helping him to get noticed by a few major universities. After going through the trials and tribulations of first year jitters Eddie went on to lead The Ohio State University in rushing his final seasons. He was awarded the Heisman Trophy, Maxwell Award, and Doak Walker award for his contribution to the team during the 1995 season. Eddie was drafted 14th overall in 1996 by the Houston Oilers (who later changed their name to the Tennessee Titans), and won Offensive Rookie of the Year. He played nine fantastic seasons and was selected to four pro-bowls.

After retirement Eddie decided to work in television. His knowledge of football is so vast television stations such as Fox College Football, FX, and Fox decided to hire him as a studio analyst. Old Tennessee Titan fans are able to find Eddie Saturday afternoons and sometimes Sunday afternoons discussing the games for the day and what his predictions are.
