Ryan Leaf was one of the most notable college football players of his time, finishing in the top three of the Heisman Trophy voting in 1997. The next year, he was selected second in the NFL draft behind fellow quarterback Peyton Manning. What followed in subsequent years is a remarkable fall out of the sport and a long path to eventually re-claiming his life. Leaf chooses to share his story of dealing with mental health issues and substance abuse in order to reach the person who cannot yet imagine a better life for themselves. In addition to his speaking engagements, Leaf is now a college football analyst for ESPN.
