Chad Eason coordinated with The Players Tribune this past week to interview SOTX athlete & former global messenger, Victor Stewart, and NFL free agent & former UT running back, Jamaal Charles, about their relationship. Victor & Jamaal met at the Special Olympics Bowling with NFL Alumni event in March.
The Players Tribune arrived at SOTX headquarters on Friday, July 6, to conduct interviews and film the two friends. Afterwards, they ate lunch and bowled at Highland Lanes with Victor’s coach, Charlie Smith, and fellow SOTX athletes Tim Smith, Marcus Cano, Meagan Flynn, and Morgan Collins. Look forward to some great footage when the video is posted in mid-August at www.playerstribune.com.
The piece will run as part of the Take Action video series, focusing on athletes who champion social equality.
