Just in time for the Super Bowl we’ve got a former NFL player and 3-time Super Bowl attendee, Mr. Grant Wistrom. Grant knows a few things about winning in the big leagues and in life. He played 9 seasons in the NFL, including six with the St. Louis Rams and three with the Seattle Seahawks. In those 9 seasons he made it to three Super Bowls, winning one with the Rams.
