Ryan Shazier's 50 Phenoms: Share Your Story

Follow the Phenoms

People say athletes inspire them. But who inspires athletes?

My life forever changed on a Monday night in Cincinnati. One injury ended my football career. But I wouldn’t let that be the end of my story.

Now, I’m meeting others who are living their own comebacks. People who faced tremendous odds. People who showed tenacity and grit. People who kept fighting, no matter the odds.

These people might not be famous, but they are phenomenal — and you should know their stories. Join me for my third season of 50 Phenoms.
