After a grinding away on the Driveline training program six or seven days a week for two years, he topped out at 95.9 mph, putting himself closer than ever to being a legitimate draft prospect.

Today, he’s helping retired athletes transition into life after sports.

That transition is much more difficult than people think.  Having gone through it myself, I have an enormous appreciation for what Tanner is doing for these athletes.
