Terrell Owens a Mentor?

After all we have heard about Terrell Owens and his past with the 49ers and Eagles, one would not expect TO of all people to mentor a undrafted rookie free agent.

A client of mine Sam Hurd made the Dallas Cowboys roster as an undrafted rookie free agent. Sam has made a huge impact thus far.

A big reason is becasue of the mentoring of Owens, who has taken Sam under his wing, teching him what has made him a success on the field. Owens stays after practice with Hurd teaching him the little things that have made him successful. He has helped guide and mentor Sam.

The Sporting News wrote a great piece during training camp entitled Hurd becoming known as more than TO's protege which in talking to Hurd has made me see a whole new side to "TO" as we may know him.

The lesson here, "don't always judge a book by it's cover" as they say. For me, I know that TO has made a positive impact on my client's career which is just starting. And for that I am thankful to him.
