THIS IS EPISODE 148 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
LaDainian Tomlinson is one of the greatest running backs in NFL history. He came into the league as the fifth overall selection by the Chargers in the 2001 draft. During his time in San Diego, he was voted into five Pro Bowls, set the NFL record for touchdowns in a season (31 in ’06) and won the 2006 NFL MVP.
He played his final two seasons with the New York Jets before retiring in 2012. He was named to the NFL’s 2000s All-Decade Team and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2017.
Tomlinson is currently an analyst for the NFL Network, but now also a movie star, making his big screen debut in the new film, “God Bless the Broken Road,” releasing in theaters Friday.
On this episode of the podcast, Tomlinson talks about his movie debut, whether he would ever become a pastor someday, where his faith in Christ was rooted, what he misses most about playing in the NFL, and how he stayed grounded during his 12-year Hall of Fame career.
