Fred talks with Troy Barnett about his interesting and non-traditional career path. Starting as a ‘walk-on’ football player for a Div1 college team, then as a ‘walk-on’ for a pro football team (New England Patriots) his early career was built on determination, persistence and hard work. He also had the foresight to prepare for ‘life-after-football’, and readied himself for a career in IT after his NFL career ended. Finally, Troy also serves as a Pastor in his community. He enthusiastically shares his insights on a career that is true to one’s self, takes the long view; and has enabled him to provide for his family not only financially but as an example of integrity, commitment and hard work.
