In case you missed it earlier this week, the NFL piece – NFL Films Presents: The Kicking Game – airs again today at noon. Can’t make it? Tune in for the 10:30 p.m. or even 2:30 a.m. airings.
The Kicking Game, which is “the story of former All-Pro punter Greg Montgomery and a small town mayor who also happens to be a part-time kicking consultant for an NFL team,” isn’t just about a one-time NFL punter who happens to do some consulting here in the present.
It’s also about a human being whose success has flown in the face of the stigma of mental illness.
Montgomery has been quite active in the world of mental health advocacy lately. If you’ll remember, he signed on as the national spokesperson for everyminute.org earlier this year, and most recently spoke at the 7th Annual NAMIWalks in Michigan.
Of course, this kicker has quite a few more irons in the fire…you’ll just have to wait and see.
In the meantime, flip over to watch his NFL special, and learn more about Greg Montgomery at his blog, Zen in the Art of Living Bipolar.
