ISM Welcomes Ryan Leaf!

ISM is excited to announce our Guest Speaker, Ryan Leaf, in advance of our ISM Hospitality for Super Bowl 52! Ryan is a former college standout QB at Washington State University, chosen #2 overall in the 1998 NFL draft, just after Peyton Manning, by the San Diego Chargers. He went on to play 5 years in the NFL for 4 different teams, including Tampa Bay, Dallas, and Seattle. While he was one of the most highly touted quarterbacks ever to come out of college, after 5 seasons in the NFL, his career was full of expectations that he didn’t live up to. That accompanied with his inability to “live life on life’s terms,” as Ryan says, led him to prison for 32 months. This adversity coupled with the guidance of an unexpected ally allowed Ryan to become a symbol of peace and inspiration for those who struggle with substance abuse and mental illness. Ryan is now the Program Ambassador for Transcend Recovery Community as well as a College Football and NFL Analyst for Fox Sports & SiriusXM, and a recent new father to a baby boy. His experiences and insight will be a welcome addition to ISM’s pre-game hospitality!
