Dan Patrick: A Life En Fuego


Sportscaster Dan Patrick reached the very pinnacle of his career, making a star of himself and the fledgling network ESPN with his and co-anchor Keith Olbermann’s irreverent and witty take on the day’s top sports highlights. With catchphrases like, “en fuego,” “you can’t stop him, you can only hope to contain him,” and “NOTHING but the bottom of the net,” Patrick forever changed the way we watch and cover sports.

In a candid interview, Patrick sits down with Growing Bolder and reveals why he walked away from what is considered the top job in the industry (something Sports Illustrated called one of the biggest career mistakes in entertainment history).

Plus, he opens up about the painful medical condition that led to intense physical pain, drug and alcohol dependency and depression. He shares why he went public with his struggles and why he’s feeling healthier, happier and more satisfied in his life and career than ever before. He also takes us inside his new project, the Dan Patrick School of Sportscasting at Full Sail University in Florida. Patrick reveals why he didn’t just attach his name to the program, he’s made a commitment to the education each and every student will receive.
