Even though that conversation has become more more one sided, but I feel like I'm equipped to handle that. But, boy, can it be demoralizing.

Here's the president earlier today, and he just wrapped up a speech. We're gonna give you lots of little snips of it. The president gave a speech down in San Antonio right near a border wall. In fact, after the speech, he's he autographed the border wall. I have a feeling that's going to be a much visited place there in Texas. They said they should sort of Have it be a tourist stop. Here's where the president signed the border wall. But he did address the events of last week. Here's what he had to say. And now I'd like to briefly address the events of last week. Millions of our citizens watch on Wednesday as a mob stormed the capital and fresh the halls of government. As I have consistently said throughout my administration, we believe in respecting America's history and traditions, not tearing them down. We believe in the rule of law, not in violence or writing. Thank you. That's a great thing to hear, the president say. I have no doubt that that's what he was going to say, because that's what he and all conservatives have been saying. Ah, well for my entire adult life time. In fact, for those of you who have taken issue with me over my repeating exactly what he said here that I condemn any violence That happened last week, and it certainly wasn't done in my name and we are. We are the law and order party. We respect law enforcement. If you take issue with me, you need to take issue with Donald Trump, too. You know, Tell me tell me how Trump's wrong about that.

"Never seen you quite like I want to do. And I'm holding out. But they were persistent, and then they came to me that was in Seattle and went out to dinner with the editor in chief. And they made me offer I couldn't refuse, and I kinda made them offer that the hope they would not refuse. You know, I had this friend back in the eighties musician than the early eighties LA, and he was brilliant, songwriter arranger singer songwriter, and he got all this attention and major labels recovering around and he was kind of punk rock about. It's like it's kind of like the man I don't want to be a part of this kind of big deal and sooner or later, they quit coming around, you know, and it never came back around. So there was a part of me that if somebody really wants you that bad, you should listen to what they have to offer and talk and not be too dismissive. So we in at this point worked on the project so long, and I had my heart blood and guts Senate, very protective of it. And it had to be this book had to be perfect or I didn't care if it ever got made it had to be designed put together and to be my thing. And I told him that with all due respect. I just got do the book at all in less. It's really the way I want it. And they agreed. And they were fantastic. And so we did it. And in retrospect, I'm so glad that I won fell through it broke, my heart so bad when that happened. I can't even tell you. But it was the best thing that happened that doing it with the mountaineers, and it came out the way I wanted the, you know, the community even though it's bigger now, I I would. Imagine fairly small and fairly tight, right? That there's a lot of communication amongst a lot of people, especially people who are is dedicated and passionate about it as some of us are about photography. But especially the people that you were photographing, and the people that were helping you in terms of access to to these to these climbers. What responsibility. Did you feel when when it finally came time that you got the deal you're putting to give the book homage consideration. Did you give in terms of, you know, the legacy of those people the importance of those people not only do they communicate to yourself in deciding making all the toys leading up to the culmination of the book, I mean, I've felt ill. I'm drawn to these people because you know, in a basic level, I feel like usual about them. I mean, that's or or whoever, you know, my sort of whole reasons ago and and find these people in photograph them is because I think they're worthy. And that's I guess my art. Cystic statement, or my personal thing is just that. I feel something is worthy. Whatever I decide the photograph. I feel that it's a thing that should be seen right on Abril basic level.

"And it's a very good question. The very first photo in the book that shows up is Glen Dawson, which happens to be the very first photo. I should shot for the for the project. It's not a chronological book photo wise, but that is the first shot, and that's the only shot I shot on four by five film, the type fifty five polaroid which I used to really love, but they stopped making that for me, I shoot very wide. Open a lot on the four by five camera and. It would be very dangerous to go and shoot. Wide open photos on guys that are about to die and get home and realize the film was out of focus. So the type fifty five was great because I could see the polaroid and have a very excellent negative. You know, that type fifty five was a beautiful negative, but they start making that. So that's one thing that change during the process as I probably would have shot a lot more for by five, and they kept making that film, but the rest, I don't know. I think really, you know, this is not a fashion shoot. Or this wasn't a thing to get conceptual with or or fancier already. You know, I wanted to be really kind of a stringent kind of. I don't know. No bullshit Walker Evans, kind of thing just that it is about these people, and I really don't wanna bring much into it. I mean, I've got my my whatever they are skills. Craft chops influences back there, but. I try not to get fancy with. No one did to be dialed down. I wanted to make really interesting photos of these people. But I didn't think I anything that. I was going to toward it up with was going to help. And I wanted to make really good photos of these people without looking like trying to when I talked to people who've worked on long term projects, and that have spend years rather than just months, we've talked about, you know, the challenges that sometimes they face that. There are moments where it puts the whole project at risk that there's there's a possibility that it can sort of fall apart and also the sort of moments where they just look at and go what the hell am I doing I should just walk away and give this up. This is why my driving myself crazy with that give me an example of one of those moments in how did you push through it? Well, I had a lot of moments like that some very bleak desperate. Oh, I had a I had a book deal offered to me back in two thousand ten by very big company that you know, about who makes very good books, and we were in conversations for nine months every day. We had mockups we had designers. We had meetings. I was living in New York at the time. They had flown out twice with face to face meetings. And things were looking fantastic. I was very excited and they sent me a rough draft of the contract. And I emailed them back and said, this is fantastic and me the finalize thing, and they evaporated Yvette berated not return phone calls. I mean, I was talking everyday to these people Sundays and Saturdays included, and they disappeared, and it was horrendous thing because at the time work was a little slow. Anyway, this was going to be a beautiful. Thing and the publisher would have done a fantastic job, but it disappeared. And I didn't hear back for months and in the interim, you know, it was my stomach. It was a really bleak time. And I just you know, that was one time. I just thought I'm not going to get this close again, all this hard work. And it just went up for no reason at all after such positively from them. So I'm not going to name them. Because should but I'm not and just you know. Yeah, it's been you know, the whole photography world has changed since digital happened. And I've been writing that roller coaster as a lot of people have of just keeping the regular career of float, you know, I'm working on this very niche project that a lot of people didn't seem to care about wasn't getting a lot of love from any any direction at times and putting a lot of money into it with minimal results.

"The first difficulty was finding out if they were even alive still like, you know, nowadays, you can just Wikipedia somebody instantly find out the death date if they're. Was one, you know. These little pieces of paper from someone with an address, and I would ride a handwritten note to Europe, and maybe wait a month or two whenever I got a reply that may come back in talian, and I'd have to get someone to translate it and find out no myong-chol died or I'm alive. Yeah. Come on over. So just that kind of stuff just the basic getting in contact before the internet took off a lot of time and money to travel to these places, you know, I've definitely had a roller coaster financial career as a photographer. So I had to do these things when I was somewhere, you know, if I happen to go over to Europe on a job, then I would try to dive in and see if I could dig up somebody hopefully, not literally while I was there. I had no funding. This entire thing was kind of me doing it on my own and finding these people. So you know there moments when I was just too poor to do it. Unless there was somebody close apply. So you know, I missed people some people died, I just couldn't get to them in times heartbreaking. I mean, not just because they died, but because I didn't get them in the book something I completely relate to doing this show going on thirteen years, and they're people who I wanted to get on the show with now passed away, and and I hear the clock ticking with a good number photographers who I've just been the very beginning of wanted to interview. And it's just like trying to convince them to do this reaching the right person to make it all happen and say I could have gotten an infect I did get very depressed at some people that I didn't get in the book. But then I had to kind of philosophize and realize that this was never supposed to be an encyclopedic be all end all collection. I mean, the book would have been too big anyway, but it's a representation of an era of a kind of climbing and the way the world. Was at the time and all those things. So it's a it's a swat booklet of climbing in that era. So how did you come to decide who you wanted to include in well number one they had to be alive. And I really was looking for the oldest ones. I goes, obviously, the their clogs for taking faster than anyone else in the beginning. It was that Sierra Nevada kind of fetish that I had it was strictly that. But once I started broadening out, I knew I wanted to represent some some areas and EROs and the Alps, you know, the, you know, one of the French and the Italians wanted to get the Himalayan guys represented and women there's men and women in this book, and sort of disciplines of climbing, you know, within the climbing world, there's people that just do bouldering sometimes or just Himalayan climbing, you know, things like that. So. So I wanted to represent some of the disciplines and the areas within that era that was after you know, you have a lot of experience that comes from foot-dragging performers permanently musicians, and your style in your approach is sort of sort of relaxed. It's not like this big production. You know, you're having a whole entourage of people in lights de feel that helps you was an advantage. When it came to people who especially people who were extremely age. Will I've done a lot of those big production photo shoots. And they're actually is something I like about that do like shooting in the studio..

"And nowadays, there's very specialized gear, you can put in as you climb that, you know, hopefully will catch you if you fall, maybe maybe not but still compared to these guys, you know, climbing north face of the Eiger back in the forties thirties with just terrible gear. It was truly something. I'm still amazed to think of the kind of climbing. They were doing with next to no protection. I mean, especially the him probes. Would you know fall are they would break under the kind of falls that climbers routinely? Take today, knowing they'll be called, you know, thirty forty footfall. Balls, and they know the gears gonna hold you couldn't fall like that. The gear would come out or the road would snap. And there was an old dictum leader must not fall as the leaders the one doing the really hard climbing. I he's going out of the protection points. And there's a lot more state the follower climbers on ropes of two. So the followers got a bit easier. But yet the leader must not fall. And it was truly the case back, then as you have the chance to meet these people. What insight did you gain about the kind of characters? These guys were because you as you said, you put graph people who came from different generations and periods of of climbing. What did you learn about not just individuals men individually as a collective group of adventures? Well, they really are from across the spectrum of, you know, poor people rich people and around the world, I ended up going all over the world getting these people, but there is a. A very individualistic type of person that gets into this kind of endeavor. I think especially back then again, I mean, it was hard enough for me to get exposed to things and do climbing in the seventies in North Carolina. But imagine the twenties or thirties there just weren't that many people around the world into it. I mean, I'd probably have more climbing friends over all now than there were total climbers back in the twenties and thirties around the world. So will you know, a lot of people have asked me, you know, 'cause you know, a lot of people know shelties musicians and rock and roller 's and they said, what is the symbol? Is there any similarity these seem so different? But you know, they're rucking rollers in the fifties. You know there were burning their records. They were very L side the realm of normalcy back, then they were outsiders, greasy hair playing rock and roll dressing, very different. And it must've been the same for the climbers who, you know. You know, going off very expensive to travel to do this useless activity of climbing mountains, I you know, I saw a lot of similarities with me, you know, lovers of nature who were attracted to this odd pursuit that required. A lot of skills that are you can't really apply anywhere else in the world. That's for sure. Again, there's this literary history of it that goes way back some fascinating books, and you got any of these people's houses, and they often have the same books you have in their library. So it's it's usually a well read bunch people with usually maybe darker since of humor, it's not the safest activity you could get involved in. There's a an I like dark humor think some of those things ties them together. Did you find yourself feeling star struck with some of these people? No, not really there was Reinhold Messner. Is famously intimidating and complicated and difficult when it took me fifteen years to actually get him. But no not starstruck. Think of only really been starstruck. Once. And that's when I met Richard avid on at the film for movie theater. The only time I'd just kinda quake in my shoes. But as you said, you know, this was a long term project, and some people you have to wait a really long time to be able to get them to sit in front of your your camera talk about the challenges about getting these people because it wasn't just getting them to cooperate. Sometimes it was just the fact that they were getting older. And well, you know, I started this way before the internet had taken off. So with a lot of these people..

"Norman, CLYDE, this really interesting figure and Sierra climbing going back to the teens, but Glen Dawson and Joel's acorn were on the first ascent of the east face amount, Whitney and nineteen thirty one although they'd been climbing in the twenties, and I just wanted to photograph them, you know, always had this need to document and find people not thinking if there's a project down the road. But so I wanted to find these two guys and I found them and photograph them and from there. I thought we'll mail find a Cup. More. And I started as I was getting into this funding out some others were alive, and it proceeded. And so I thought at some point we'll maybe this is a little tight pamphlet of Sierra Nevada legends and kept getting more than I thought. Well, maybe there's you know, there's a little gallery show. Maybe there's a little series here. But it just kept going. And then I got Bradford Washburn who had founded the Boston science museum had explored the Alaska ranges back in the thirties and forties. Great photographer, by the way. His aerial mountainscapes are incredible shooting on eight by ten roll film camera. And once I got him it became an American project. So it had kinda left the realm of the Sierra Nevada had become Americans. And then once I got Riccardo Casini and Italy who was a hundred years old and died a week after I'm photographed him, it became international. And slowly. I started realizing I had I guess a responsibility. Definitely an interest to to get these guys before they all left. It's really sort of a fascinating introduction at least for me of that. We're on because I've seen climbing magazines, and I've seen the YouTube videos with the free climbers, and sort of thing. But the most part, you know, my imagination. It's it's fairly recent thing you demonstrate how far back it went. And what's really phenomenal about what these guys accomplished is that they didn't have the high tech equipment in gear. The people today use these guys were just short of working with sticks and stones when it came to climbing, these climbing these mountains described us, you know, the that reality and the challenges guys face when they were making these record-breaking sense will it's horrifying. I've been on some of the routes babe done with more modern gear, and you know, it's common for climbers when they're on a route like that that has been put up by somebody way back then. Then just imagine wearing hobnail boots and wearing a Hambro tied around your waist and blue line on a coils. Not. Yeah. You know, the gear was very far apart. You know, your protection points that might be a Piton. I mean, some of these very difficult routes were protected with one ton in a hundred feet of climbing..

"I I rarely go back to older episodes. And it was really like a chip on a time machine to listen to to to myself and the interview because once I have it in the can I don't look back. Seeing the, but once we talked I did listen to a few seconds of our talk, and man so much as changed since then couldn't listen to myself for much more than that. You know, this book is very different from the work that we discussed the first time around and reading your introduction to the book is really fascinating defined out facet of your life. That it was completely unaware of it at the time in here affinity for for climbing in the in the outdoors, and I wanna start off with that story that you have in the introduction of when you were a kid when you would visit the store that sold climbing equipment in how you would sort of just indulge yourself in all the different -ment in gear. I love that part of your story. Tell me about your fascination in about those moments that you had in those stores. Well, you know, I think I mentioned that piece in the book that I wrote that when I was a kid. My father had all these life magazines lying around from the thirties and forties. You know, that really turned me onto a lot of different things seeing pictures of the world, you know, this really graphic black mind, photography and. And I'm sure it was probably there that I I saw some heroic photos of someone on the top of mome blank or somewhere in the Alps waving and ice ax. And I was very active kid I had a lot of energy, but I wasn't necessarily into team sports. But I knew I wanted to do something outdoors with all that energy. And suddenly just seeing that first photo really click something in my brain. But there I was and little Salisbury North Carolina, and obviously too young to really get out and meet people. So I had this really frustrating leaning that couldn't really satisfy for quite a few years could look at photographs once in a while we're talking about the late sixties into the early seventies. When I was quite young and the one-sided kind of figured out where the climbing store was would ride my bike over and loiter. Sniffing the movement looking through some of the books, and you know, really kinda paid my dues in that way. Before I finally got outside and did it and in climbing isn't what it is now where it's really popular pastime among a real diverse in wind age group of people at the time. It was a fairly unique niche. Well, yeah..

"This is about an inex- and this is the candidate frame. Though, I didn't realize it at the time. Many of the interviews that recorded for you to wrap up the two thousand eighteen season have something in common in very unique ways. We meet photographers who go to extraordinary lengths to create their work. We can often think photography as a relatively simple thing. I mean, all you have to do is present button or Tampa screen, and you've got a picture. The people I'm talking about however, make commitments that go beyond the mechanics of just taking a picture. These are people who are committed to a vision a story or a purpose for their work. When I interviewed photographer Jim Harrington ten years ago, he had already begun his project the climbers at the time. He had mentioned a personal project that he was working on. But we didn't include it in the discussion. But the project which spanned nearly two decades was completed an image images compiled in a beautiful and stunning book that was released last year his portrait's of adventurers who is climbers where some of the first climb the world's highest and most treacherous speaks. These were the people who inspired generations of sports climbers going back to climate established reputation as far back as the twenties Jim has been on his own track to create a body of work that at any point could have failed because of money time, logistics and even mortality, but just like his subjects Jim was able to achieve something extraordinary and beat the odds because he began this project before the age of the internet he had to reach out to subjects the old fashioned way. And hope that he would be able to connect with them and convince them. To be part of the project. You know, it gets his little pieces of paper from someone with an address. I would ride a handwritten note to Europe, and maybe wait a month or two whenever I got a reply that may come back in talian, and I'd have to get someone to translate it and find out no myong-chol died or I'm alive. Yeah. Come on over. So just that kind of stuff just the basic getting in contact before the internet took off the Collado time, and and money to travel to these places, you know, I've definitely at a roller coaster financial career as a photographer. So I had to do these things when I was somewhere, you know, if I happen to go over to Europe on a job, then I would try to dive in and see if I could dig up somebody, hopefully, not literally while I was there an avid climber himself his research and his conversations with people gave him an appreciation for the risks that these people took their climbs, though, we live in an age of high tech, climbing gear these people brave their climbs and their lives with Quinn that was less advanced and wasn't always reliable will it's horrifying. I've been on some of the routes bathed. Done with more modern gear, and you know, it's common for climbers when they're on a route like that that has been put up by somebody way back then just imagine wearing hobnail boots and wearing a Hambro tied around your waist and above line on coils. Not. Yeah. You know, the gear was very far apart. You know, your protection points that might be a Piton. I mean, some of these very difficult routes were protected with one Piton in a hundred feet of climbing. And nowadays, there's very specialized gear, you can put in as you climb that, you know, hopefully will catch you if you fall, maybe maybe not but still compared to these guys, you know, climbing a north face of the Eiger back in the forties thirties with just terrible gear. It was truly something. I'm still amazed to think of the kind of climbing. They were doing with next to no protection. We'll talk to Jim about the many ups and downs of seeing project through after twenty years and how a crushing disappointment became the best thing that could happen. Welcome to the candidate frame. L? Jim welcome back to the candidate frame ten years later as nice to talk to you again it sinks for having me. It's amazing..

We're going to have with us in a little bit Bill Tucker to talk to us. But we we have a number of other surprise guests are going to be joining us. But I I wanna speak to Ben Malcolm's and he's the assistant coach for Seattle Seahawks. Assistant to of course, be Carol who's known to many New Yorkers year from his time at the New York Jets. He's also the author of the book walk on from peewee dropout to N NY NFL sidelines. My unlikely story football purpose and following an amazing guy. Thanks for being with us here in the arena. Beauty monsignor. Ben. You know, I wanted to just read one thing that you had in your book you said. As I did on the day of all tryouts. We face an uncomfortable and unfamiliar situation life. We always have a choice to face our fears and fight through them or allow them to paralyze us where in your life. Can you make the choice to battle your fears, even when you are faced with difficult or unfamiliar circumstances? Tell us about one of those circumstances in your life. Oh, man. Well, have to go back a few years. I went I went to school at USC moss Angeles. And I was a student newspaper. Reporter was a journalism major Los Angeles. That's in California. Yeah. That's right. Oh, yeah. I was a student newspaper reporter and journalism major and trying to find my way through college and was covering the football team there USC, and this was at the time when you a seems kind of the peak of college football for all those years in a row in the mid to thousands. And I figured I need to read a good story about the team and really kind of close out my college career and a saw that there were walk on tryouts football team coming up, and this is where they kind of do an open casting call for the football team. Just kind of open it up to any student there to try out. And so I figured why don't I go through the trial to write a story and show a hard. It is to go through the trial, and it'll be really funny and really hard for me because I hadn't played football since fifth grade. So here I was a student newspaper. You hadn't toss the ball around with your dad or anybody you throw the football around the parking lot before football games. Sometimes they you're gonna go watch. But I hadn't actually put on pads and a helmet since I was fifth grade. Poplar then just miserably failed at football's undersized and all that. So here I was a senior in college the number one team in the country at the time, and I was a student newspaper reporter, and I was going through the trial just writing articles as definitely Hainan myself in a very fearful place and what happened. Well, I go through the trial, and I had just hit a gold mine in terms of an article for right at home. I couldn't wait to write that article was working on it. The next few days in two days after the trial, and I get a phone call saying on the football team. This is I thought it was a prank call I mean, there's no way was possible in this is the the best team in the country was hundred sixty five pounds. I hadn't played football since it's great. And that was going to try not to make the team, but just right article. And so all of a sudden this this had to be a prank, call this. There's no way this was real but went in and I talked to coach Carroll, and he said, no, it's real here on the football team. There was a total turnabout. Amaz agree. Real amazing story. Tell us a little bit about that. What that meant for you like, all right? I made the team now like what was that like making the team? Well, it was hard. I mean Penn play football since fifth grade. There's been more than ten years. I I didn't know how to put pads or. I mean, I played football video games, but reading a playbook in real life is way different than clicking the screen on video game. So it was very challenging. And obviously, I was very size. I'm going against guys that about I think it was fifty four guys on that team ended up playing the NFL. So I mean, I'm going against guys that are legit football players. And here I am just a scrub who was just going through the trial to write an article. Why do you think you made the team? Oh, I think I was fortunate the competition wasn't as yeah. Yeah. I bet. I kind of stood out. But I don't know. I think coach coach Carroll is always a fan of a good story. And I guess he saw something in me, and I'm thankful that. He did. You know, a you've been likened to Rudy US's Rudy. How do you kinda respond to that? When people say that to you. Well, there's no one quite like Rudy golden down out there. He's one of the kind where it's an honor to be associated with him. And this is cool because the story obviously, it goes on and there's so much more encapsulated in the book on. That really is inspired a lot of people. And that's my favorite part about this story about this journey is that it's become bigger than me through a lot going on beyond me. A lot of people are fearful of experiencing pain in life, and whether it's the emotional or mental pain spiritual pain, but you experienced some pain to talk a little talk to us a little bit about your injury. Yeah. So I disregarded my shoulder about a month into practice, and I had to get surgery. And they said I was gonna be offer nine months after the surgery. And so I would have missed the whole season. But I was fortunate just miraculous healing. I was back in four and a half months and back to. Suiting up and plan in practice and then soon up on game days. And I was just so fortunate that had God's handle my life to to be able to experience that America's healing. And there's no other way to explain it. You talk a lot about God in your life. So tell us a little bit. How God has been moving in your life from childhood to now. Yeah. Well, I grew up in the church and was fortunate to have that upbringing. And when I went to college it really by faith became my own, and I kind of took ownership of it and had a personal encounter with Jesus in began a relationship with God. And that changed my life forever. And it gave me the sense of purpose in life. That I'm not here on earth just to get through life and get to heaven. But I place your honors because God has a purpose for me. And I think that's that applies to everyone has fallen God. I was so fortunate to have that that realization, and when I made the football team, I had that sense right away. That got me on that team for a purpose? Ben, we speak about this purpose. You you said something, which is I think really important from a faith perspective. A lot of people think I'm here. So I can get to heaven. But but there's something more that God wants us. So for you. What is it more that God wants for you? Yeah. I think he's called us to be on mission. And he's called us here on this earth. For a reason he's got a call in a purpose for each one of us. And I think it's joining with him on this lifesaving mission. He's on and to bring the people around us and point them to him. And I'm so fortunate that I've. Then able to experience so many things that's become real. And that's become part of my life in just of profound way. And I it doesn't matter. What your your title is your job where you're located? I think God has an incredible purpose. One of us. When you think for yourself about your relationship with Christ? You know, we're all kind of tested in relationships. Aren't we? You know, because that's how relationships grow when we're asked to take a risk. Where would you think that God has asked you Ben Malcolm sent to take a risk? Yeah. When I was on the team USC, they're being placed there in just crazy set of circumstances. And knowing that God could have picked anyone else to be on the football team if he needed to sign football player, but he wanted me to be on that team for reason. And so I was eager to see what it was. I just couldn't wait to find out. Why got me on that team? And I was pressed into that I tried to start a bible study in that failed. So there's that risk and it was disappointment. Because I was discouraged that no one showed up at this bible study. And then I started a prayer group for the team again, no one showed up, and I just tried to be a good friend and a good teammate. But it just felt like I was not seeing the fruit of my purpose there, and I wasn't seeing me on that team. It was very discouraging and very frustrating and very disheartening. And then I got an idea that everyone on the team should get a bible that I read in the book about his af chapter fifty five is says if his word goes out does not come back empty, and so I figured if I put his word out there. It's not gonna come back empty, and I place the bible and every one of my teammates lockers and start last week team together, and I couldn't wait to St. what God hat for me there and had for our team there because he's always faithful to his promise and his promises that if his word goes out does not come back empty. I was just excited and eager to see what was happening, and I walk into the locker room in the Bible's would just shredded torn up ripped ages all over the floor. You could barely even see the carpet. Because all you saw shredded pages of bibles who earn? I was devastated because once again failed at trying to find on purpose on that team and trying to find why God please me there on that UC football team. And so I was crushed. And it was very disheartening Jenner. You can imagine the discouragement. I was facing the doubt. And it was it was really tough. And we go through the rest of that week and we played in the Rose Bowl. And there's an incredible experience from football perspective. But from a wife and a faith in purpose perspective, I completely sales and just a few days after Rose Bowl game. One of my teammates are kickers. Mario he tragically passed away in the middle of the night. Twenty one years old, and I was crushed. Because here he was one of my closest friend. On the team dealing with death. At that young age was very challenging. And we go to a few days later on top of his casket. Was it carried it down the center Iowa was the bible that placed in his locker? And it was just an incredible moment of of divine comfort for me. You saw goddess reaching out and just kind of acknowledging what I'd done, and it was just so powerful for me to move through that time and Muzi that Chretien. It was incredible. And then years later, I ended up taking a job with coach Carroll at Seattle Seahawks up. Thousand miles up the coast and. I moved to Seattle. And I didn't know anyone..
