John grew up in Gillette, Wyoming surrounded by an unbelievable support network. He attended Utah State University where he graduated with his Bachelor in Exercise Science. He signed with the Houston Texans and went on to a 12-year professional football career in both the NFL and CFL with the Saskatchewan Roughriders, Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, Hamilton Tiger-Cats, and the Edmonton Eskimos. He is a 2-time Grey Cup Champion, a 3 time ALL-Star, 3-time nominee for the CFL’s Most Outstanding Defensive Player.
His more cherished accomplishment during his football career was in the way he was able to serve the communities he lived as a national advocate for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation; a condition in which he has proudly conquered daily since the age of 14.
In 2018 John stepped away from football to provide a more stable life for his amazing wife Catherine and their 10 wonderful children. He started 2 businesses Iron Will Fitness and Kickin It Coed, and recently became a director of prison ministry.
He loves to workout, play board games, and pick up basketball, and I heard he submitted a video for The Titan Games because of his belief in himself, his family, and in Jesus Christ.
