THIS IS EPISODE 133 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Since 2014, Tress Way has been punting in the NFL for the Washington Redskins. The University of Oklahoma grad led the NFL in punting in 2014 with 47.5 yards per punt.
Undrafted out of college, Way had to overcome being cut twice by the Chicago Bears at the end of the 2013 and 2014 preseason before finding himself in our nation’s capital. In 2016, he signed a five-year extension with Washington that will keep him with the club through 2020.
Way is married to Brianna Turang, a former softball and soccer star at the University of Oklahoma. Brianna is also the daughter of former MLB outfielder Brian Turang and the sister of Brice Turang, who plays in the Milwaukee Brewers organization. Tress and Brianna became parents to twins (a boy and a girl) in April.
In his spare time, Way is also an entrepreneur and has started a game company called “WAY FUN GAMES.” His first board game, “What’s Your Bid?” is now available on Amazon.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Way about punting, preparing for the 2018 season, his faith testimony, inventing a board game, meeting his wife in Oklahoma, his epic proposal and how he ended up in Washington after being cut twice by the Bears.
"Who you are is not based on what you long for. Your identity is based on what Jesus Christ has done for you."
