Episode 2: Paving The Way
2674
The father/son bond is ingrained in the culture of football. Countless fathers coached their sons in pee wee leagues through high school, and there have been over 200 sets of fathers and sons who played pro football. In the second episode of DRAFTED, we focus on two offensive lineman whose fathers helped shape them as players and men - often through tough love. We meet Tremayne Anchrum. Who starred at Clemson, and University of Louisville’s Mekhi Becton, who shocked the sporting world at the 2020 NFL Combine. They may play the same position on the O-line, but as you’ll hear in this episode, their approach to the draft is very different. DRAFTED is narrated by Keegan-Michael Key.  Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers
