Chase Daniel, 10-year NFL veteran, discusses leadership, mental performance, QBs in the NFL Draft, and how he improves his longevity in such a difficult arena. A must-listen for anyone looking for the performance edge as Chase says confidently he’s at his best when he goes Beyond Sets and Reps with spiritual, mental, and emotional aspects of life.
Chase describes how growing up in a Christian household with many opportunities for success helped develop his leadership, both vocally and by example. He learned at an early age leadership is earned, not given and is blessed to have been put in so many opportunities to exercise and improve his leadership skills.
Going undrafted in the 2009 NFL draft was his first encounter with adversity, causing him to reevaluate his goals. Chase began taking one day at a time and learned to capitalize on each opportunity to get better, including learning what real hard work meant from none other than Drew Brees. He finds renewed energy when demonstrating his ability to handle adversity.
We got insights from the vet on NFL prospect Kyler Murray, as well as current NFL phenom, Patrick Mahomes II. In addition, Chase weighed in on how the requirements for QBs have changed over time, specifically the height requirement myth has been debunked.
Among the things that have made Chase most successful are his relationships with coaches, which he values immensely, and his life outside of football. He feels more balanced than ever with a clear sense or purpose, both on and off the field.
