Who Is Collin Saring?
I first came across Collin Saring on Twitter. Hall of Fame NFL quarterback Kurt Warner posted a tweet prompting fans to ask him any question on their mind.
I saw Collin’s reply and immediately knew I needed to find a way to get this man on the podcast.
I’ve worked to grow my relationship with God more and more because of people like you. I was hospitalized between my sophomore and junior year playing college football. 2 1/2 months. Brain infection, I was in a coma and icu for two weeks. Shouldn’t be alive.— Collin Saring ???????? (@CoachSaring) April 1, 2019
That tweet sums up Collin’s story in a nutshell. But, as you’ll hear today, there’s a lot more to it.
Collin Saring shouldn’t be alive, let alone gearing up to play another season of arena football. This is a man who’s been through the lowest of the lows and has come back stronger each and every time.
We decided to break the interview up into two parts. Today, you’ll hear about Saring’s humble beginnings and the night that changed his life forever.
Quote Of The Week
“From not being able to play quarterback as a young kid, to being benched on senior night…Week 10 after I started every game. I was kind of very mentally tough early on in my playing stages and throughout this whole process.” – Collin Saring, QB, Gulf Coast Fire
