While much of the sports industry is focused on the athletes of this era, it is hard to miss the success of Coach Player Magazine’s cover issue athlete. Two-time Super Bowl Champion running back and return man, Vaughn Hebron, played professionally for the Philadelphia Eagles and Denver Broncos for six seasons. Following a successful career, Hebron has continued to impress as owner and CEO of his own fitness company post-NFL.
The following is an excerpt and preview from ‘Still Running’ written by Rich Bouch. The full version is available in the Winter Issue of Coach and Player Magazine here.
“As a youngster, Hebron always had a knack for football. He had such a knack, in fact that a certain officer of the law searched high and low through the streets of the city in an attempt to find the young boy. The search, in this case, was not because Hebron had run afoul of the law as many of his friends thought. The officer was a youth league football coach and, upon finding the young Hebron, introduced him to the game that would take him to great heights.”
Bouch’s article touches on each of these aspects as Hebron went from a child growing up in Baltimore to playing in college at Virginia Tech, professionally in the NFL and his current day success in the fitness industry.
“Growing up, I can remember guys like Vaughn Hebron. Guys who were the underdog,” said C+P writer Rich Bouch. “They were too small or too slow or too something to make it. This is a guy who proved that he can do anything…and not just make it in the NFL, but make it in life.”
“My knee injury is really what lead me to my career after football. I loved training itself and, of course, the results. I love it so much that I knew I could help others do the same.”
