We recently sat down for a chat with Shawne Merriman, former San Diego Charger great, three-time Pro Bowler and an All-Pro linebacker. “Lights Out,” as he was dubbed, has done quite well for himself after football, creating his own clothing line, recently becoming the owner of a NASCAR vehicle and even toying with the idea of becoming a professional Bellator MMA fighter.
We had a great discussion, running the gamut from his latest ventures and future goals to his thoughts on Fantasy football and his favourite memories of his playing days.
Among the topics we covered with Shawne were:
- His goal to introduce NASCAR to minorities.
- How he spends most of his time since retiring from the NFL in 2012.
- How tough it was for him, when he announced one of the Chargers’ draft picks, to remember to call them the Los Angeles Chargers.
- He picks his favourites for the Super Bowl.
