Let's Talk Football: Brian Bosworth

Gridirion Legend Talks Football with Texas Bowl Fans

You may know him from the crazy haircuts, off-the-wall antics and outrageous stories but Brian "The Boz" Bosworth is so much more. In the second event of the Texas Bowl Let's Talk Football series, Bosworth sat down with Texas Bowl fans to talk about what it was like growing up playing high school football in Texas, what it was like to transition to the big stage at Oklahoma University and told some fantastic stories about his time as a Sooner.

It may surprise those who only followed his career in college, but Bosworth was not necessarily considered a Texas high school football standout, especially at the beginning of his high school football career. The Boz shared how he was able to stay motivated and always mentally pushing for the next level.

The transition from high school to collegiate football can be a mental challenge for many athletes, Bosworth included. He gave us a glimpse into how he overcame these challenges to become a successful college player.

Reaching your potential as a player takes so much more than just showing up to play the game. Bosworth dove into the mental aspect of learning to prepare to reach and exceed his potential when he was at Oklahoma.

Before we closed our interview with The Boz, we had to ask. What was up with that infamous orange hair during the Orange Bowl. His answer will make your day.
