A Man of Character On and Off the Field, with Luke Kuechly

Luke Kuechly is considered to be one of the best NFL linebackers of all-time. He played 8 seasons with the Carolina Paranthers, beginning in 2012 when he led the league in tackles and won the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year award. In 2013, he became the youngest ever to win the NFL Defensive Player of the Year award and began a streak of 6 straight Pro Bowl selections. Luke’s lists of awards piled up more each year including winning the NFL Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award Winner in 2017 before retiring from the NFL in 2019. His athleticism, vision and feel for the game made every one of his teams better going back to his high school days at St. Xavier in Cincinnati where he helped his 2007 team go 15-0 and take the #1 ranking in the country. He then attended Boston College where he set a school record for tackles (2nd in NCAA) and was a 2 time All-American. Since retiring, Luke is focusing on his family and is enjoying his time hunting and fishing. In this interview, Matt and Luke discuss some of his career highlights and the roots of his character formation growing up in Cincinnati.
