Unlike most sports podcast this interview series with Jacolby Gilliam isn’t about how big an athlete’s name is but about their journey.

However, it wasn’t the exciting big signing day type story, but the tear his ACL his senior year of high school, let me try to walk-on at my dream University type of story. His story doesn’t make him special, but it’s his journey. A journey that he thought he was alone on because of the stigma that athletes are supposed to be strong and not show weakness. He started 9INE POINT with the aspirations to spark a new platform for current and the next generation of athletes. Basically, something he wishes he had growing up. Society always highlights the glamorous lifestyle of being an athlete but avoids talking about the ups and the downs that come as well like the anxiety or depression after a severe injury.

The Journey is Greater Than the Reward!

This podcast is so awesome because it is so real and honest! The host, who has an incredible background and story of his own, has on these high performers and elite and world class athletes, and he has them talk candidly about the trials and tribulations of their journeys. Such a useful way to learn through storytelling!
