Eben Britton was a seven-year-old boy watching the news one day at his grandparents when he distinctly recalls seeing the local news covering the NY Jets and Giants at training camp. Eben felt something—like a seed planting in his heart. He told himself that he would one day be “one of those warriors.” Over time, Eben grew to be six feet, six inches tall, and weighed at one point 325 pounds. He ultimately became a gridiron gladiator, getting drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars and playing six seasons, including two years with the Chicago Bears.
Those six years took a toll on Eben physically. He suffered through a lot of pain and had to retire at age 28.
But this is where Eben’s story is just beginning.
