"From the day I met Mr. Lucas, I knew that God had sent me an Angel. He has helped prepare me for the next chapter in the book of Russell."
Houston, TX (PRWEB) October 20, 2010
Inside the NFL on Showtime travels to Houston, TX this week for an in depth interview with JaMarcus Russell and John Lucas- Wednesday, October 20 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
JaMarcus Russell and John Lucas join host Josina Anderson on air/in his apartment in Houston to discuss his time in the John Lucas Enterprises Athletes After Care Program, in which Russell became a part of on August 13, 2010. Discussions range from Russell ardently working to maintain the positive attitude and proper mindset it takes to be successful in the NFL and to the strict regimen that Lucas has instituted for his preparation to reemerge as a successful NFL Quarterback.
Russell talks about his rise to prominence as the first overall pick in the 2007 draft, his much storied 3 year stint with the Oakland Raiders and his current travels to Houston. He joined John Lucas to participate in the Life Skills program designed to put Russell back where he belongs, under center, leading a successful NFL franchise.
“The day that I met Mr. Lucas, I knew that God had sent me an angel. From the moment John set out to work with me I knew it was the missing link I needed to accept my role as a leader and ultimately a student of life and the game I love. Football is more than a passion for me and through this program I’ve realized and accepted that I’m 100% accountable for the choices I’ve made and with the proper mindset and dedication to my craft that I’m headed in the right direction. I’m ready for the next chapter in the Book of Russell,” Russell said.
Russell and Lucas share more than a working relationship. Both were Number 1 draft picks in their respective sports and both spent time in the Bay Area, among numerous other similarities. Russell currently works with several members of John Lucas Enterprises ranging from a dietician, strength and conditioning coach and a quarterback coach. Russell has given over complete control of the process and has grasped all the opportunities to experience his potential that he has been offered.
“I am committed to JaMarcus for the duration of his career. He has been nothing but worthy of an opportunity with another team from the moment we joined forces. Each of the programs and itineraries I’ve instituted has been to create a positive environment for JaMarcus. He has been nothing but eager to use these to become a better man and to accept his position as a role model to today’s youth,” Lucas said. “JaMarcus is ready to move forward and to take on the next chapter in his career.”
