The Shark Effect


Making the most out of your opportunities

Season 1, Ep. 3

In this episode Fred McCary shares his journey of playing in the NFL. His story is inspirational to say the least, from being thrown into a position that he didn't want to be in but making that decision into a 12-year career playing one of the most physically demanding positions in football. Fred won a superbowl ring with the New England Patriots and he shares a pretty cool story about the G.O.A.T., Tom Brady and that magical season.
