NOTE: THERE IS A 1 MINUTE DELAY AFTER OPENING COMMERCIAL ENDS AND PROGRAM BEGINS. Keith Mitchell, a former Pro Bowl linebacker with the New Orleans Saints, talks about his journey from NFL star to a popular yoga and meditation teacher. At a New York yoga festival Mitchell reflected on his transformation. “That’s so different from where I’ve come from because normally when I’d journey to the East Coast and New York City I would not be bringing peace typically. We would come here to beat up on the New York Giants and New York Jets.”
While it may seem strange to see a retired NFL veteran leading an outdoor yoga festival, Mitchell’s journey to his current profession as a certified yoga and meditation instructor actually started with a very scary moment on the football field in 2003. In a Week Two game versus the Buffalo Bills, Mitchell, then playing for the Jacksonville Jaguars, ended up suffering a serious injury when making a tackle.
While he tried to briefly return to the field after the injury, Mitchell’s NFL career was done. Now living in Los Angeles, Mitchell gravitated to yoga and meditation more and more over the past decade as he sought a way to make peace with the physical and mental consequences of no longer being a football player.
“Unless you create a system of healing or working through it, it just gets bigger and bigger and it grows and manifests. The family that person gets involved with or the kids they have, they suffer.” Join us for Keith's triumphant story.

We kick off our third year as YOUR Wisconsin-sports podcast by bringing on another former Wisconsin Badgers standout in the NFL. Linebacker Conor O'Neill talks about the emotions he experienced after the Chicago Bears told him they would sign him as a free agent in June, his training preparation for the NFL, and who he thinks will lead the 2014 Badgers defense under defensive coordinator Dave Aranda.
Plus, we'll talk LeBron James heading back to the Cleveland Cavaliers, and how that'll affect the Milwaukee Bucks. If LeBron can be forgiven in Cleveland, what would it take for Badgers fans to forgive Bret Bielema, or Green Bay Packers fans to forgive Brett Favre?

Drive, determination, resiliency, intensity, and humility. Any of these characteristics can be used to describe linebacker Rennie Curran. ?Considered an undersized player by numerous critics going into college, he quickly silenced any doubters by striking fear into the hearts of opposing offenses during his three dominant years as an All-American football player at the University of Georgia.
??Drafted in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Titans, Curran is a force to be reckoned with in the National Football League. However, to truly understand Rennie Curran as a man, one must look deeper than his playing career.
Curran has “The Liberian Dream” tattooed on his left bicep, and rightfully so. He has great pride in his Liberian heritage. This pride was brought on by the hard work and determination he witnessed from his family during their numerous struggles with adversity.
Curran’s parents came to America from Liberia during the mid-1980s and remained permanently after civil war broke out in their homeland. During that time, his mother earned a master’s degree in nursing from Emory University, while his father started a shoe repair business. Curran grew up witnessing the sacrifices his family made as they supported and sheltered their Liberian family members and friends during the war.
?Curran’s experiences in life have paved the way for him to become the man that he is today. He still lives his life through the lessons he learned from his family. His on the field intensity and drive to help others is a testament to that. He currently spends much of his time with his daughter, Eleana, giving her the same love he received as a child. Rennie Curran truly is “The Liberian Dream”.
