The QB podcast talks to Tanner Mangum, Former BYU star and Elite 11 MVP [On A Mission] (Ep. 11)
The QB Podcast
Tanner Mangum went from being the best high school QB in Idaho, to co-MVP (with Jameis Winston) of both the Elite 11 and prestigious Under Armour All America game, to leaving football for two years to serve a religious mission in Chile. The mission was in accordance with his Mormon faith. After the two-year hiatus, Mangum became BYU's backup QB. With an injury to the team starter, Mangum came off the sidelines and led BYU to two consecutive miracle victories with last second Hail Mary's. His legend was born. That season, he'd go on to set BYU records for most passing yards and TDs as a freshman. That's better than previous BYU stars, Steve Young, Ty Detmer, or Jim McMahon. But injuries and other setbacks set off trying times, and struggles with mental health. Mangum bravely opened up about these challenges, winning fans across the country. But what about football? Does he have what it takes to make an NFL roster? Mangum sits down with Brian Fitch and Quincy, who's training Mangum for the draft, in one of the most revealing and inspiring interviews featured on The QB podcast.Support the show (http://www.buzzsprout.com/219467)
Tanner Mangum: BYU QB wants others to know ‘It’s not a weakness to get help, it’s a sign of strength.’
THE IT FACTORY: Pac-12 Football with Yogi Roth
“It’s not a weakness to get help, it’s a sign of strength.’ ~ BYU QB/Elite 11 co-MVP Tanner MangumTanner Mangum was an unknown recruit in 2011 from Eagle, Idaho and after a summer with the Elite 11—the premiere high school quarterback competition—he catapulted himself onto the map in college football, as he was named co-MVP with Jameis Winston and Neal Burcham at the 2011 Elite 11 quarterback camp. Tanner always knew that he was capable of accomplishing great things if he worked hard, but in his case, greatness didn’t always originate from football. Tanner decided to put his newfound fame and notoriety in football on hold in order to follow his faith and serve a two-year mission trip in Chile to get to the core of people, as well as himself, in order to connect with a different culture and recognize the universal humanity that we all share. When he returned he instantly became a household name, as he threw the game winning touchdown pass for BYU as they beat Nebraska on a ‘Hail Mary’ as time expired in his first college game. While his fame on the field grew, he struggles off the field grew as well. And just like he did as a quarterback, he went to work, yet this time it was on his mental health. Then, in 2017, Tanner told the sports world that he was dealing with mild depression and anxiety. He initiated the ‘Why Not Now?’ campaign to encourage people that there is no time like the present to talk about mental health and that it's ok to ask for help. During Mental Health Awareness Month, Tanner joins The Yogi Roth show to share his story and educate us that 1 in 5 student-athletes seek help with mental health, and those are only the statistics reported. This conversation will impact those listening; ranging from athletes, coaches, families and more to remind us all that mental health is something that must continue to be talked about, without fear of judgment.Listen to this podcast for more insights about Tanner’s mission trip and college football career, as well as how he continues to seek a life of contentment and inner peace.
