Morgan Trent is a former NFL player who was selected in the sixth round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals. He played his college football at the University of Michigan, where he started 41 of 48 games and had eight career interceptions. He also was a track and field sprinter with the Wolverines before joining the NFL.
After playing four seasons with the Bengals, Colts, Jaguars and Redskins, Trent’s NFL career was over and he turned to real estate. He earned his real estate license and is currently working with Aaron Kirman Partners and selling real estate in Southern California. And he is currently featured on CNBC’s newest show “Listing Impossible,” airing Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET. You can also watch the show online at CNBC.com.
He attends Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif., and lives by the simple phrase “Love God, Love People.”
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Trent about going from the reality show of the NFL to a reality show on CNBC. He tells us how he got interested in real estate, how his personal relationship with Jesus took shape in college, what faith was like in the NFL, living out that faith now as a real estate agent, and the difficulty that so many have in transitioning out of the NFL into the workplace.

10 years ago the Lord allowed me to live out my childhood dream by hearing my name get called in the NFL draft. At that moment all the hard work and years of sacrifice paid off and gave me a sense of accomplishment that only few get to feel. BUT, dreams change and not every dream is meant to last forever. I’m thankful for new dreams and goals. If you’ve been blessed to see one dream come true, start dreaming again! #NFL #Bengals #2009NFLDraft #MorganTrent #Dream #NFL2CNBC
