This week, I chat with my friend Sherrod Baltimore (@Sbodymore), a professional defensive back in the Canadian Football League for the OTTAWA REDBLACKS. He just completed his 3rd season in the CFL and has a bright future in the league, but things weren’t always looking so bright for Sherrod…
Coming from a single-parent household in the rough and crime-ridden neighbourhoods just outside of Washington DC, Sherrod was evicted over 6 times and bounced around over a dozen different homes. Despite this, he surrounded himself with good people and found a safe haven through playing football and basketball and through his perseverance, talent and and his relentless ability to overcome adversity, earned a scholarship to play football at the University of Maine for 4 years where he shined as a defensive back.
In spire of playing well, Sherrod received no pro offers and began coaching at the university, where he then once again created his own luck by sliding his highlight tape to an Ottawa Redblacks scout who eventually gave him a shot to try out with the team in 2017. That same year, Sherrod earned a spot on the practice squad and eventually on to the team where he was named the Redblacks Rookie of the year.
There’s a great CTV documentary that goes more in-depth into Sherrod’s story, I strongly recommend you take 10 minutes to watch it! https://www.ctvnews.ca/w5/sports-kept-him-alive-now-sherrod-baltimore-is-living-his-dream-in-the-cfl-1.4632929
We had an amazing conversation about overcoming adversity, football, nutrition and taking care of your body. This episode is full of advice for young people wanting to make it, we discuss various business and life goals and so so much more. You don’t have to be the biggest or fastest to have a big heart and this guy exemplifies that.
