Shawn Springs NFL to Data and Technology CEO
In this episode, Shawn Springs and I revisit old football memories and leadership lessons which paved the way for him become the Founder and CEO of Windpact, a successful materials data and technology company. Shawn was a top national football recruit leaving high school, which led to an illustrious college career at Ohio State. Springs would be named the Big 10 Defensive Player of the Year, earn All-American honors, and follow his father’s legacy, Ron Springs, into the NFL. Springs was chosen by the Seattle Seahawks as the third pick overall in the 1997 NFL draft. To this day, no cornerback has ever been picked higher in the draft. He played in the NFL for 13 seasons with the Seahawks, Washington Redskins and the New England Patriots before retiring and building Windpact.
