Roosevelt Nix- From Substitute Teacher to NFL Starter

Roosevelt Nix (@dat_dude_nix45) is the starting fullback for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He played college ball at Kent State, winning the MAC Defensive Player of Year as a freshman and was also the first player in school history to be named first team all MAC for all 4 years. After going undrafted, he was picked up by the Atlanta Falcons but was released during training camp. Listen below to hear how Rosie went from undrafted, to free agent to Pittsburgh Steeler in the course of a year.

Just from meeting with Rosie for the podcast and a couple times beforehand, he is legit a good dude. You can tell he cares about people and has a lot of wisdom/perspective/insight to offer. In this episode, we talk about his journey and also alot of  interesting things outside of football. Hope you enjoy.
