As the NFL Draft approaches, many young athletes will achieve their dreams. Whether they are in New York sitting in the green room or at home with their friends and family, these young athletes are waiting for the phone to ring.
They're waiting for that phone call that they've worked their entire football lives for. The call that will change their lives and make their dreams a reality. Each player picks up the phone with a smile on their face and a nervous "Hello."
Hearing the head coach welcome you to the team and letting you know that their NFL franchise is about to make you the next selection is a moment that words cannot describe. Your people around you cheer, your heart beats faster and everything slows down.
You are now officially part of an NFL team. Getting to this moment takes a lot of dedication, hard work and athletic ability. Thousands work hard to get that phone call, but only a couple hundred actually get selected.
In this competitive environment today, athletes need to find an edge. IMG Academies in Bradenton, Florida has been providing athletes an edge for over 30 years.
They have an impressive resume that has produced 131 All Stars, 63 MVP Awards, 22 World Championships, five National Titles, two Heisman Trophies, 889 Tournaments, 107 Major Championships and 11 Olympic Medals.
I was able to speak with the director of IMG Performance Institute, Trevor Moawad, and ask him about IMG and what athletes need to do so they can one day get that special phone call.
