Bettis also discusses his time playing for the Pittsburgh Steelers, one of the oldest and most storied franchises in NFL history. He says that his time in Pittsburgh was special because of how well he was treated by the franchise, the owner, and the community. He also comments on the state of the current NFL, including the evolution of the quarterback position and the changing role of running backs.
The former Steeler also shares his personal story of going back to school to finish his degree at Notre Dame, despite having a successful NFL career and a business. He did so to fulfill a promise to his parents and to set an example for his children that education is the number one priority. He emphasizes that the experience was difficult but rewarding, especially because he was able to share his diploma with his mom and teach his children the importance of education.
Bettis’ passion for the sport and commitment to education serves as a great inspiration for many. Listen now to get a glimpse into the world of sports and the NFL from the perspective of a legend.
