On this episode of the Wise Counsel Project, Gary Martin Hays interviews former NFL player and current Executive Vice President for NFL Football Operations, Troy Vincent. The interview was held at the All Pro Dads Live Event. Troy was one of the key speakers. To begin the interview Gary had Vincent read Proverbs 13:20, ‘Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm’ – and give his thoughts on what the verse means to him. “There’s nothing like wisdom,” Vincent says. He encourages others to find the right mentors. Growing up, Troy said he looked for a mentor he could identify with and respected. He searched for individuals who exuded leadership because he wanted to become a leader.
The NFL has given Troy the privilege and responsibility of being a mentor to 21 at risk players during the off season. Having been in their shoes he desires to give them wise counsel about what it takes to be a success in the league. He conveys to these players their value not only to the team but also to their families, to the club and to the community.Troy Vincent – Episode 22 Wise Counsel Project with Gary Martin Hays from Gary Martin Hays on Vimeo.
On this episode of the Wise Counsel Project Gary Martin Hays concludes his interview with former NFL player and current Executive Vice President for NFL Football Operations, Troy Vincent. Gary inquired about an interview Troy and friend Brian Dawkins had given in the year 2000. Both men had what they called a spiritual awakening and decided that living for Christ was going to be more important to them than anything else. Vincent declares the importance of finding men with similar values so that each can hold the other accountable. If one friend begins to sway, the other friend will right him again. Troy emphasizes the relevance of this, not just on the field but at home, in marriage, and with child -rearing. Men, women and children that find one another can help each other greatly in this way.
Vincent ends by talking about the blessing of marriage and children and revealed that when his time on earth is at an end, his greatest desire is to be known as a fisher of men.
