Jordan Campbell is the founder of Winner Circle Athletics, a unique school in Southern California that helps students achieve their dreams of playing sports at a high level. He joined The Yogi Roth Show to share how he is impacting the next generation of athletes and leaders while going down memory lane with his former coach at USC, Yogi.
The Winner Circle Athletics, Jordan says, is designed to give students the mentorship that allowed him to have success in his own career, which included playing football at the University of Southern California and later in the NFL. It also teaches tangible tools to students while offering athletic training at a level that is extremely unique in education.
For an athlete, being drafted by the NFL is a dream realized. Money, fame, celebrity – and of course the assumption of a career. Like Hollywood experience, however, all that glitters is not gold. Although everyone has a different perspective and unique experience, it helps to know what’s on the path ahead.
In my case, it wasn’t about making millions of dollars, the diamond encrusted super watch or the personalize Maybach. It wasn’t that life changing experience. It was something more deeply personal – recognizing it as a challenge and a major goal. Yes, being in the NFL did help me chart the course of my life in an ultimately fulfilling role. But there were many, many learning curves on that road.
Los Angeles Rams and LA Chargers picked up important new players in the NFL Draft this week, and there is a one-of-a-kind charter school in Southern California that trains elementary and middle school kids who dream of one day hearing their names called by the NFL commissioner.
Jordan Campbell is the visionary behind the program, and there are NFL players who say the program helped them become better professionals.
Breakfast is praised as the most important meal of the day, but when exactly should you eat it? Some people chow down on cereal seconds after the alarm goes off, while others need to wake up for a few minutes before they can even think about food. For most people, the best time to eat solid food after waking up depends on a few different factors. As with pretty much any other dietary question, the answer is: it depends.
The Total Tutor Neil Haley and Caregiver Dave will interview NFL Star Jordan Campbell of Winner Circle Athletics.
Jordan Campbell, (Cincinnati Bengals, Washington Redskins) and Kansas City Chiefs. who started Winner Circle Athletics with a $5000 NFL signing bonus 5 years ago and has parlayed that into a multimillion dollar SoCal facility and school that trains kids in all sports – but most specifically football. Of note, this is the first charter school in the country with a focus on athletics.
When we plan a workout regime, sometimes it feels like the hardest part of the equation is finding the time in our day to fit it in. To many of us, it seems like there’s never enough time.
When looking for “advanced” guides to fat loss, the words “carb cycling” often appear at the top of the list. This isn’t a strategy that’s usually recommended for people struggling with obesity or those with no experience tracking calories or macronutrients. Carb cycling is a tactic typically recommended for people who are relatively lean and have come to a plateau in their fat loss or strength gains. Is it the right diet for your needs?
The exploitation of athletes is hardly a new phenomenon, but the alarming rate at which the private high school sports machine is targeting young student-athletes should be a red flag warning for parents and students alike. It’s an ugly truth that deep-pocketed private high schools are building a multi-million-dollar business off the backs of young athletes, not unlike college athletics. On the surface, recruiting is hardly negative. After all, being part of a higher profile athletic team as a pathway to a D1 college scholarship, and hopefully a pro contract, is the Big Dream.
had the pleasure to interview Jordan Campbell, of the Cincinnati Bengals. Jordan learned early on that vision and planning were critical to athletes, personally and professionally. The distinction with Jordan is that his concept has dramatically changed the lives of hundreds of kids, thanks to his creating Winner Circle Athletics, a one-of-a-kind charter school and sports training facility catering to middle school age kids with big athletic dreams but need an educated pathway. It’s the first charter school in the country with a focus on athletics. After shattering records at Norco High (four straight CIF championships), Jordan was awarded a full-ride scholarship to USC, which cemented his belief in surrounding himself with winners – a philosophy that set the foundation for Winner Circle Athletics years later.
In order to reach the echelons of a professional athlete, you have to have an enormous drive, grit, and determination. Grit, drive, and determination are critical work ethic lessons that most us can apply in our own life.
Here are 15 short lessons I learned from prominent sports stars.
I hope you find some of these nuggets useful!
Jordan Campbell grew up in a very poor area in Rubidoux, Calif. He witnessed many of his friends get involved with drugs and gangs.
Afraid Jordan would fall victim to a similar fate, Colleen and Titus Campbell uprooted their family from that environment and moved to nearby Norco.
Having lived as a professional athlete and now coach to young athletes, I know all too well the role social media plays in building one’s brand. Or tearing it down. Like so much in life, it depends on your planning and strategies. The pluses are obvious. A fledgling athlete can jumpstart a core base of recognition quickly to consistently build on. For younger prospective athletes, it’s a fast growth spurt but one rife with potential pitfalls that could easily derail a career.
Transitioning from one year to another isn’t merely about popping champagne and aspiring to drop weight, build muscle, or finally make it to Asia. Rather, it’s an opportunity to redefine and reconsider your career path, focusing not only on where you’ve been, but where you hope to go, too.
CORONA – Aydin Breland came here as a lacrosse guy. “It’s a new CIF sport,” the 13-year-old from Corona’s Cavaliers travel team says. But it’s not exactly where the seventh-grader’s athletic focus is now that he’s at the Winners Circle Academy.
Take it from someone who’s earned the right, sometimes the hard way, to talk about brand building. In today’s world, brand building is an integral part of the athletic make up. No athlete worth his/her weight doesn’t have a brand that he or she built from years of sweat, tears and grinding. They understand that the most important thing for a student athlete during the recruiting process and later as a player on the big stage is building his or her brand.
The Corona-Norco Settlement House got 100 Thanksgiving meals donated by a Corona training facility.
Employees of Winner Circle Athletics, owned by Corona resident Jordan Campbell, delivered the food. The business also plans to donate 100 bicycles that its staff and students put together.
