Offseason Update

Offseason:

This offseason was great for many reasons. In February, I had the opportunity to travel and learn about the NFLPA and the intricacies of the NFL. My family and I took several vacations. In February we went to Arizona (where I trained at Zone AP – Evan Mathis’ gym in Scottsdale) and California where we visited with family friends and enjoyed In-N-Out Burger one too many times.  In March we went down to the Bahamas for a week to participate in the annual NFLPA conference. We stayed in Atlantis and had a great time with other NFL players, their families and former players. Since I live in Philadelphia year round, I had the chance to introduce myself to the new coaching and strength and conditioning staff before we started team workouts.  I’ve been working hard with them day in and day out to strengthen my body and ensure I am in tip-top shape for next season!

Workouts:

Workouts officially began in April and it’s nice to have everyone back together and see what individuals have been working on during our time off. We are all impressed with the work everyone has put in on their own! Chip believes that the team will do best only when we all bring out the best in ourselves so we are striving to push ourselves to our limit each and every day. In order to do that we have to train the best and recover the quickest so that we can play our best. The Eagles have one mission, one goal in mind… as the African proverb says “sticks in a bundle are unbreakable”.

The Last Phase:

We are into our last phase of workouts before training camp. This means we will be able to practice longer and scrimmage against our offense. With the high tempo and aggressive style  that our offense brings, the defense has been working to neutralize how an offense like that can hurt us. We will be able to try out our new packages and most of all compete. I want to be the best so that we can be our best. Our attention to detail will make the difference. Go Eagles and Play It Forward. What do you guys think of the 2013 schedule? I know I can’t wait to get back out there.

Philly.com: Father’s breast cancer inspires Eagles’ Kurt Coleman

Kurt Coleman understands toughness, and it’s not just the kind you see after a collision so intense his helmet flies off. Some toughness runs deeper, and he saw it after a conversation he had with his father in November 2006, when the Eagles’ starting safety was a freshman at Ohio State. Read story »

Show Your Support for the Susan G. Komen Philadelphia Race for the Cure this Sunday!

Happy Mothers Day to all the Moms out there!! I hope you all have a fabulous and well deserved relaxing day with your families.

This Sunday is the Susan G. Komen Philadelphia Race for the Cure Walk. I just got back from picking up our Coleman4aCure team shirts for the walk and I could feel all of the excitement in the air. The race is truly something special; thousands of people coming together, raising money and awareness for breast cancer. Beyond raising money and awareness, the race is also about honoring those people who have lost their lives to breast cancer, those that are still fighting and those who have overcome the disease.

On Air with SportsNetNews

I had a chance to jump on air with a friend named Chris from Rich East High School in Park Forest, IL. He’s a young, aspiring radio host that had asked me to join him on SportsNetNews for an interview, and let me be the first to say he’s got a great future ahead of him. We took a look back at my career as a Philadelphia Eagle thus far and discussed the team’s preparation for the upcoming season. Check out the audio and see how great he’s going to be! Good luck Chris and go Eagles!

Preston and Steve

Last Friday was a phenomenal day for me. I had a chance to go on the air with Preston and Steve at 93.3 WMMR. We talked about my career as a Philadelphia Eagle and discussed the challenges in my life that have shaped me into the man I am today. We also had a chance to chat about my future modeling career, which I will keep in my back pocket for after football. I had a great time with all of the staff there and want to thank them for allowing me on their show. In case you missed the show here’s the link to listen in on our conversation.

Turning the Corner

The offseason has been going by so fast. It feels like the 2011 football season just ended and 2012 with the Eagles is right around the corner . . . can’t wait. My offseason began with some quality personal time out of the city with close friends and family. I’m grateful that I was able to travel out to California to visit one of my best friends, Grant. It was good to relax for the weekend with friends and family at his sister’s wedding. Came back east to Philly after a great weekend and had to gear up and pack up for my much anticipated trip back home to Ohio, which has definitely been the highlight of the offseason.

As always, I made the Philly to Ohio trip by car. The long drive wasn’t as bad as usual because I had a production crew from FullCircle Intermedia to help entertain me and document my trip back home. Every time I go back it feels like I’ve only been gone a few days. Before getting home I wanted to check in at my alma mater, Northmont High School, to talk to some students and catch up on everything that’s been going on there. The warm and welcoming reception that Northmont gave me, along with the entire town of Dayton was unbelievable, great people. After that, I got to spend quality time with my family for the next three days. Family is so important to me and I’m thankful for every minute I get to spend with them. Unfortunately, I don’t get to go home too often, but when I do I try to soak it up and eat as much hometown food as I can get.
