KELVIN SHEPPARD (:00)

Kelvin Sheppard, the new Director of Player Development, joins the show! He talks about how important it is for him as former player to be around these players now during their development. For those athletes, it’s being coached and guided by someone who was once in their shoes and once went through the struggles that they might be going through now. Kelvin talks about being a team guy and how important it was for him when he was playing to have older players that he could lean on for guidance. He also mentions what it was like to be an out of state athelte and how it now feels like he’s coming home to Baton Rouge. His goal in this position is to get all these players to their end goal whether that’s the NFL or not.
