The tagline for his foundation is “Empowering From Within.” After listening to the show, you will hear his passion for the people of the world who are facing extreme poverty.
Jack talked about his history being raised in Texas as a student-athlete. He mentioned the challenges of wanting to be a great student in an sports or football-crazy area that did not reward student-athletes.
Education was very important to Jack and he used football to gain the resources he need to continue his education. He landed at the University of Minnesota and graduated with a bachelors and a masters degree in Sports Management. After completing his college career, he played in the NFL for 5 years.
During this whole time, he had a desire to give back to people who did not have the same opportunities that he had received because of sports. This desire become the inspiration for the Jack Brewer Foundation.
The Jack Brewer Foundation has become one the leaders on a global basis sharing with athletes the possibilities of helping others with the resources they have been given through sport.
