THIS IS EPISODE 412 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Sam Acho is currently a linebacker with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was selected in the fourth round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Arizona Cardinals after playing his college football at the University of Texas.
He spent four seasons with Arizona before signing with the Bears in 2015. He played four seasons in Chicago and after a brief stint with Buffalo, he signed in November with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Acho about his new role with the Buccaneers, finding his value in Christ and not football, getting to know Jesus intimately, writing his first book, and how the wisdom of a dying friend changed his life.

Freedom doesn’t happen until you let go. Let go of other people’s expectations ; let go of your own. Freedom is found when you hold on. Hold on to God’s hand. No matter the circumstances, no matter the consequences. There is hope. There is joy. Love is attainable; Freedom is near. Let go. It’s the only way. I recently started to let go. I’ve begun to see myself the way God sees me. And it’s freeing. The battle is in the mind, and victory is here! But God wants us to be a part of His journey. He knows us. He sees us. Do not be afraid.
