THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
WITH JASON ROMANO, FEATURING ANDRE WADSWORTH
Andre Wadsworth was selected third overall in the 1998 NFL Draft after a stellar college career at Florida State. With the Seminoles, Wadsworth was named first- or second-team All-ACC all four years. In 1997, he finished his season with 16 sacks and was named the ACC Defensive Player of the Year.
Regarded as the top prospect in the 1998 draft, Wadsworth was selected third by the Arizona Cardinals behind quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Ryan Leaf. During his rookie year, he helped the Cardinals reach the second round of the playoffs. However, injuries would take a toll on Wadsworth, who had multiple knee surgeries that ultimately ended his career in 2007.
Currently, he is the senior executive pastor and founder of Impact Church in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Today on the podcast, we talk to Wadsworth about his current role as a pastor, his desire to disciple and help people grow in their faith, the lessons he learned from playing for legendary Florida State coach Bobby Bowden, and why he continues to trust in God during a difficult season of life.
It's Thursday, so let's "throwback" to our Seminole Legend series. Today we are featuring 1997 consensus All-American and No. 3 pick in the NFL Draft Andre Wadsworth.#OneTribe | #NoleFamily pic.twitter.com/hQ4Tk0jXWG
