Show Notes:

  • Rich Spotlight: Dan Mowrey
    • Baseball was his first love
    • Started playing soccer and begged his dad to play football
    • Practiced in a field kicking over a pear tree
    • Chose FSU over Florida after first committing to Florida
    • Redshirted Freshman year at FSU and it took time to regain full confidence
    • Uniquely tied to the FSU-Miami rivalry after missing game-tieing kick in final seconds in 1992 known as “Wide Right II”
    • The missed kick does not define him and was actually one of the best things to happen to him
    • NFL opportunity never materialized and eventually decided on law school and is now a partner in Mowrey, Shoemaker, Beardsley law firm in St. Augustine, FL
    • Words of Wisdom from Dan Mowrey: “Stay centered.  Allow yourself to get upset but don’t lose sight in where you’re going and when good things happen, allow yourself a pat on the back but don’t get lost in where you’re going.”
  • Weekly Words of Wisdom:
    • “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”  President Theodore Roosevelt
