Jack Lengyel - EPISODE 16
Welcome back to the Game of Life Podcast there we bring to you the behind the scenes in the lives of NBA players, business savvy enertapreneuars and top level performers in all fields of personal development. The podcast that helps you become the best version of...you.  
This week on the Game of Life Podcast we have Jack Lengyel  . Now you might be wondering, who is Jack Lengyel? - if I said we had Matthew McConaughey on the podcast would you know who that is?  We basically do, the real life version of the the head football coach for Marshall University (McConaughey's We Are Marshall movie) Jack took over the program as the head football coach after the devastating Southern Airways Flight 932 crashed into a hill just short of it's destination killing all 75 people on board. The plane was carrying 37 members of the Marshall University Thundering Herd football team, nine members of the coaching staff, 25 boosters, and four flight crew members. The accident is the deadliest tragedy affecting any sports team in U.S. history.
And Jack had the task of rebuilding not only the football team, but an entire community struck by devastation. 
 
Jack goes in depth today on what it was like transforming tragedy into hope, building a football team that had absolutely no players (taking walk on, baseball players, and literally hippies- you'll love that story!) 
 
Jack's story is one of absolute inspiration. In times where Jack could have succumbed to the treacherous rebuilding road, to the adversities that struck daily along the way, to an entire community putting the weight of their existence on his shoulders, Jack rose above it all and brought the town of Huntington, West VA together as one.
I'm serious, this conversation gave me goosebumps throughout - it's one of the most tragic/inspirational stories you will ever here.  Get ready.

SPONSOR:
AMPLE--
Before we do through, I want to tell you about what I eat every single day for lunch. I'm an absolute health nut (but not in a crazy kale, lettuce, everything green kind of way) I want my healthy food to taste good. Really good. That's exactly why I make a big massive smoothie everyday for lunch with Ample. 
Let me break this down for you --- Here is what Ample will bring to you from a health perspective:

3 Pointers -
3 things I am learning/experimenting with this week:
 
1. Book I'm reading - Essentialism by Greg McKeown
The Way of the Essentialist isn’t about getting more done in less time. It’s about getting only the right things done. It is not a time management strategy, or a productivity technique. It is a systematic discipline for discerning what is absolutely essential, then eliminating everything that is not, so we can make the highest possible contribution towards the things that really matter.

2. Health product Im using - 
Ashwaganda - https://authoritynutrition.com/12-proven-ashwagandha-benefits/
 
3. Basketball Insight - 
In the UCLA gym this past week we had James Harden, Kyrie Irving, Carmelo Anthony, Jimmy Butler, Demar Derozan, over 20 nba players all together. Upwards of 1 billion dollars on the court playing pick up basketball in a gym on the top floor of a recreation center that has been around since John Wooden at UCLA. 
I might just have to do a podcast on this Gym and the special aura it has - Kareem, Magic, Jordan, everyone who is anyone has come through the the mysterious gym. 
Oh and Kanye West asked me to play pick up with him as well - let's just say he's not 7feet tall. Or 6feet.
