Episode 16: Who Says I Can't...NOBODY featuring Coach Rob Mendez

The Brothers Brandt

Coach Rob Mendez was the winner of the 2019 Jimmy V Award for Perseverance at the ESPYS (check the youtube link at the bottom to see his speech). Rob was born without arms and legs, but he was determined to be a football coach. In this episode, we talk about growing up in Gilroy, CA and the support Rob had with his friends and family. We discuss sports growing up and Sharks Hockey. We talk about Rob's love for video games and how he could probably whoop our butts in Madden. We also talk about his journey to being a head football coach, winning the ESPY Award and life now for him as he travels the world inspiring others with his story. Rob is the most inspiring person I have ever met and we are so grateful to have him on the pod telling his story... Who says I Can't ... NOBODY!!!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0HJIFgb_IbM --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thebrothersbrandt/support
