Darryll Stinson – Central Michigan Football

“Never let a bad day make you think you have a bad life.  One relationship. One opportunity. One thought can change your life. Hang in there. You may just be ONE step away from a brand new life.”

“Watching my teammates Antonio Brown, and Eric Fisher (the #1 pick in 2013 draft) and other professional athletes that I played with or against was the hardest thing in my life to do. I was happy for them, but their success reminded me of my failure. It took a long time for me to heal. That’s why I’m so passionate about helping other athletes as well. I help athletes build their dream career and/or business after sports.” 

“Just because your career is finished, doesn’t mean your life is. There’s life, fulfillment, and purpose beyond the game. Also, from a mindset standpoint, you are enough! And you’re worth more than you give yourself credit.” 

“I learned to overcome rejection through prayer, study, self-reflection, persistence and having DEEP conversations with others.” 

“Athletes can best support one another through adversity by offering GRACE and LOVE. Love people the most when they deserve it the least. Give others the same grace you wish they’d give to you.”
