With Naaman Roosevelt

Winston One on One CFL football player interviews on iTunes
February 04, 2018

My goal is to figure out the tips and tricks of professional football players and also to give you a glimpse into their personal and professional lives. In this episode, I talk to
Naaman Roosevelt. Naaman is a current slot back with the Saskatchewan Roughriders and my grandmas favourite player. Not just because of his playing style on the field but also because his contribution to the community and his outside interests. Naaman has inspired me to make the best out of the opportunities in life cause we only get so few

And that you get and to be more rounded to take time for other hobbies I have. He has inspired me to paint my own cleats and write my own rap music. My favourite part of our interview was when we did a rap off I sang one of my songs and he sang one about his childhood friend who passed away but without further ado I hope you enjoy

But without further ado I hope you enjoy!

With the amount of TVs around it is impossible to miss a second. The Brewhouse is also the place that I go to on my cheat days. With the flavour of their poutine and burgers, its always a reward!
