Let me just go out there and say it: Matt D’Orazio is a stud. Yes, that’s right, Matt is a football superstar! Not only is he an eight year Arena Football League veteran, but he also has won two Arena Bowl Championship games and was the MVP both times. In fact, the left side of his body is hunched lower than his right side due to the weight of his championship rings.
Although D’Orazio is a prototypical NFL quarterback at 6’4″, 230 pounds with the accuracy of a sniper, he has not been able to make it on an NFL roster. Why, do you ask? There are a number of factors that play into “making it” in the sports world both as an athlete and executive. Matt shares with you the thrill of winning the championship, the importance of having fun along your journey to the top, and what needs to happen before you make it big.
This video was taken directly after one of our workouts in 38 degree weather, so feel free to leave a remark on my hat head 🙂
How long have you been trying to make it as an elite athlete or get the position your want in the sports industry? Are you having fun on your journey? Are you reaching out to past connections and promoting your personal brand to decision makers? Feel free to ask Matt a question in the comments section below, or share with him some of the challenges you face.
