Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. This one happens to come in size XXXL with a heart to match. Join us as we talk to professional athlete, coach, and mentor Jim Opperman as he talks to us about not just how he has survived in life, how he has truly thrived in it. Former linebacker for The Philadelphia Eagles, and a 40 year career as a high school football and wrestling coach, Jim takes us from the bench, to the field and into the interiors of his life. *** Hosted by Stephanie James.
