Episode 16 - From My POV w/ Dakoda Shepley
Play • 20 min

Do you bet on yourself? Offensive Lineman for the Seattle Seahawks - Dakoda Shepley, didn’t start his athletic career playing football, he actually started out playing hockey - as Canadian as it gets! He even went to a training camp at Michigan State and told the football coach he wanted to play “defence” because he “thought defence defended the quarterback”… After starting to play in high school, he was then recruited to UBC where he, alongside his teammates won a Championship - putting Dakoda on the football map. As an undrafted free agent coming out of university, he signed with the NY Jets and was cut after being told that he was “too raw and had “too much to develop”. From there he went to play in the CFL for the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Shortly after, he signed as a free agent with the San Fran 49ers and was eventually waived after 1 season and claimed by the Seahawks all within the same day. Although Dakoda’s NFL journey is just beginning, he firmly believes that the biggest way to achieve your goals is by betting on yourself, and realizing that “the only way to fail, is to quit”.
