But opens up about life and family, and yes, his unabiding love for Harry Potter. #wandlife. Mike reveals what house the Sorting Hat would place him in and how he would fare on the Quidditch pitch. He makes a strong case for why he would not just be a good Seeker, but a Viktor Krum-level Golden Snitch snatcher. (Editor’s note: that’s a stretch. But Mike Evans would definitely give Maximus Brankovitch III a run for his money.) We hear about his experience on a private jet, food picks in Paris and his pregame playlist. Mike is one of the best in the game right now and this episode is one you can’t miss. Listen up. Big Truss. BIG. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    North Carolina's finest, aka TG3, the Georgia Bulldog himself, Todd Gurley, stops in to chat with the guys on this episode of Truss Levelz. Did you know that TG3 started off as a track phenom? Well, he did. Our man has speed speed. You’ll hear about him traveling the world to race. Why he nearly went to Princeton instead of Georgia — a move that could’ve turned him into a podcaster instead of an NFL star. The crazy time at Georgia. His ACL tear and entry to the league. And when he realized he could play his game at the highest level. We should probably mention how he drops hints at what it’s like as a member of Roc Nation. Along with food and travel spots. I mean, what more do you need? TG3, now TG33 for the Atlanta Falcons, is the former Offensive Player of the Year, three-time Pro-Bowler, two-time All Pro First Team selection. Just call him Mr. Accolade. His dreads are pretty fire, too. Turn the volume up. You don’t want to miss out on this one. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    The MVP, aka L Freaky, aka Lamar Jackson joins the fellas for this week’s episode of Truss Levelz. The man who invented “Truss” gives us its origin story, how it became the Ravens’ mantra and also one of his favorite tattoos. LJ takes us back to his years dominating in Florida’s elite Pop Warner league and what he was like as a free safety. The guys get into his college decision and why Louisville won out over the Florida schools. From the start of college on … it’s been nothing but success for LJ. He put his name on the map freshman year, but sophomore year he rocketed to the moon, becoming the youngest Heisman winner ever, putting up a combined 4,298 yards rushing and passing, with 51 touchdowns. He finished off college with a killer junior year and then bounced for the 2018 NFL draft. He reveals to the guys how he felt on draft night as he dropped further and further – and why he low-key wished he hadn’t worn his Gucci suit that day. Then it’s all about the league. He talks about waiting to play his first year, putting everyone on skates during his MVP year, breaking records, and why he ain’t even close to where he wants to be. The best is yet to come when it comes to Lamar Jackson, ladies and gentleman. Enough said — tune in. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    KING HENRY is in the building. The 2019 Ground Player of the Year pops off on this week’s episode of Truss Levelz. First off, D Henry in high school, was absurd. I mean we’re talking domination. This man had over 12,000 rushing yards over four years…. Yeah, that's the national high school record. Then he gets into going to Bama, the crazy backfield they had while he was there, and his junior year — how it felt winning the Heisman, setting the SEC rushing record, and putting the Tide back on top. And speaking of that national championship game, Mark and Derrick set the record straight on the meme that sent the Internet on fire when Derrick made Mark look pretty short…. Then, it’s to the league, what he learned in his first few years and what changed in 2019 for him to become one of the best backs in the NFL. Later on, D Henry talks his favorite kicks, which Titans uniforms are the coldest, and why he and Mark should have statues at Alabama. Simply put, the man is a beast. Tune in.

    It’s ya boy, B-Wagz, THE Bobby Wagner, tackling Episode 4 of Truss Levelz. Pro Bowls upon Pro Bowls, All-Decade Team, five-time First Team All-Pro recipient — ya feel? Legend status. B-Wagz breaks it all down this week. Being a Jordan Brand athlete — elite! Remembering how the announcers on draft night gave his 2012 Seattle draft class a fat F — not a C or a D — an eff'in' F! But the young guns proved the haters wrong two years later with that Super Bowl win. Facts. Bobby takes it back to his first trip to Utah State and being up to his knees in snow (in sweatpants, no less). That time he accidentally took down Sherm in practice rookie year. And he drops a little bit of Wagner wisdom on the boys about being his own agent. Wags also says he will not retire until he gets to wear his dream uniform color combo. Food, travel, music and more. Bobby Wagner chops it up big time on this episode of Truss Levelz. Tune IN.  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    Yeeeet! It’s the one and only, the money bag-holding, tight end-playing, beast — George Kittle! Buckle up for a lot of laughs as Cam and Mark get right into George’s boyhood in Iowa, how his family is basically an All-Star lineup of record-breaking athletes, and why he played at three different high schools. Then it's onto college at Iowa; including how good he was at drinking beer and what it was like playing tight end in the Big Ten while weighing a mere 220 pounds … hint, not easy. George gets into how he played well — quietly — his rookie year in the league and then what it was like transitioning to superstar status when he blew up his second season. He also shares his pregame tradition — reading a letter that is written by his father, something they’ve been doing since George’s first snaps at Iowa. Then… SPOILER ALERT! Game of Thrones talk gets … intense. George explains how he would’ve changed the ending and why he would’ve been a great extra to get killed in a battle scene. WWE, video games, and why George is absolutely terrified of horses, are more reasons why you’ll want to strap in for this one. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Say hello to Hollywood, as he gets into it all, including explaining how Florida Pop Warner is just different, with thousands in the stands and the whole hood coming out to rock with their guys. His rise is unique: With no D1 offers, he told his mom he’d go JUCO and wouldn’t come back without a D-I scholarship, and … He. Did. That. Then he talks going crazy at Oklahoma, including setting the school record for yards in a game and playing with two Heisman QB’s. From there it’s off to the league, to what it’s like being boys with the MVP, why he loves playing for the Ravens and him popping off his rookie year.

He joins Truss Levelz to talk facts. The Norcross, Georgia, high school star tells how his upbringing shaped his views on life. Why that shape didn’t fit all that well at Alabama.

His big breakout season in 2018. And that sacrifice of playing on one leg for an entire season. AK doesn’t hold back on anything. The running back is on a Hall of Fame trajectory.
