Cory Withrow, former NFL Center, CTE and Life After Football

Posted September 17, 2018 by in

Cory Withrow, former NFL Center, talks about the two sides of his professional football career. One being, what it took mentally to compete in the trenches at the professional level for over a decade. The other is how he is dealing with early CTE symptoms due to years of competition. In general, most stories you hear about CTE are not pleasant or positive. However, Cory shares his optimism about his personal experience with his medical care, cognitive testing, and his family support. Impressively, he shares if he could do it all over again, he would 100% play the game of football.
