Today on the BeachLifestyle Radio Show, Host Neil Haley The Total Tutor will interview Former NFL Linebacker Keith O'Neil!
Married man, father, two-time All-Big Sky Conference team member, All-American linebacker, ex-NFL linebacker, Super Bowl champion — Keith O’Neil had it all, including bipolar disorder, a mental health malady that he had unbeknownst struggled with his entire life.
The Super Bowl XLI winner suffers from bipolar disorder one, a form of bipolar disorder characterized chiefly, in his case, anxiety. Accompanying symptoms include mania, depression, and vibrant mood swings.
The anxiety tormented Keith from a young age in the form of sleepless nights. All he could do was lie awake at night with his mind racing more furiously than the final lap of the Indy 500. Sometimes, the thoughts even featured suicide, though he never dabbled in any suicide attempts.
Keith was an exemplary linebacker for the Sweet Home High School Panthers in Amherst, New York. He earned a scholarship with Northern Arizona University and made letterman all four years before graduating in 2003.
An undrafted free agent linebacker out of Northern Arizona in 2003, Keith only had one goal for his NFL career.
