This week, it is our honor to hang out with Montee Ball for our 200th episode! Montee played for the UW-Madison Badgers in college and the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots in the NFL. He had an amazing record-setting career in college but fell to his addiction soon after and shares his experiences and journey through his addiction. Montee is a recovery coach and has a passion to help adolescents with addiction and mental health. Join Dave and Montee as they talk about football, support on and off the field, and how Montee’s passion is helping others through their own journey.
Montee Ball is a former running back for the Wisconsin Badgers and Denver Broncos. At Wisconsin, Ball was a two time All-American, 3x Big Ten Champion, 2011 Heisman Finalist, 2012 Doak Walker award winner, and holds the record for the most touchdowns ever scored by a running back in the history of the NCAA.
Ball was drafted in the second round to the Denver Broncos where he played with Peyton Manning and helped to lead the team to Super Bowl 48.
Now, a proud father, a published author of his book, “Nowhere To Run,” recovery coach, and President of his non-profit, The Montee Ball Foundation, Ball is determined to provide financial assistance to adolescents seeking mental health and addiction treatment. His mission is to make sure adolescents are given equitable access to the support they need.
