On today’s episode I have special guest Adam Gotsis who is a current NFL defensive end, currently a free agent, and played his college ball at Georgia Tech. Adam was selected in the 2nd round of the NFL draft in 2016 by the Denver Broncos. Adam sustained an ACL tear in week 13 of the past NFL season. Adam brings a unique perspective as a professional athlete who is currently going through his rehab.

On today's episode, Adam and I discuss

  • Adams's ACL story
  • How his rehab is currently going
  • Rehabbing as a professional athlete
  • Challenges of going through rehab without being currently signed to a team
  • What he would've changed in his rehab after his first ACL
  • How his knee felt his rookie season being his first season back after the first tear
  • Fears about returning to play
