Welcome to Scouting Myself, a new series where professional athletes give elite high school athletes the opportunity of a lifetime: The chance to break down film, run drills and discover what it takes to make it to the next level — straight from the pros themselves. This next installment features Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen.
I think there’s no greater impact on a young kid’s life than high school sports. I’m anxious to hear Emeka’s story. I’m anxious to share my story with him — kind of talk him through my experiences, which were very similar to his 15 years ago.
For a young kid to be expected at 15, 16, 17 years old to know what to do — it’s hard. It’s a tough ask.
