This week on the Steel City Nation podcast we'll be interviewing Shawn Springs. Springs is a graduate of The Ohio State University and a former All Pro in the National Football league for the Seattle Seahawks. At OSU he was a two-time Academic All-Big Ten Athlete and was named the Big 10 Defensive Player of the Year in 1996. In 1997, Shawn entered the National Football League and was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks with the third pick overall. He remains the highest cornerback ever drafted in the NFL. He was selected to the ProBowl in 1998. In 2004 he left Seattle and signed with his hometown Washington Redskins. While playing for the Redskins, he became the only player in NFL history to lead his team statistically with sacks and interceptions in the same year. He finished his playing career in 2010 by spending a year playing for the New England Patriots. While in the NFL, Shawn became the President and Founder of the Springs For Life Foundation, a non-profit which support at-risk youth. He was chosen by both Seattle and Washingtonh as their representative for the NFL Walter Payton “Man of the Year.” Currently, Springs is the founder and CEO of Windpact Inc, a company that is developing safety technology to be used in sports, military and recreation equipment. Additionally, Shawn works as local commentator and anchor for NBC/Comcast SportsNet, discussing all things relating to the Washington Redskins. He also appears on ESPN and NFL Network.
We will discuss with Shawn his playing career both at Ohio State University and for the NFL teams he was part of. He will share with us about his foundation he started while in the NFL and what motivated him to do so. We will talk about his other business ventures since retiring from the NFL and what his current company is doing in the world of safety technology. We will get Shawn’s thoughts on the state of the National Football League today and some of the important issues he feels must be tackled to continue to grow the league going forward. For his Decade Definers, Shawn will list for us the top five receivers he faced during his playing career.
