Interview: NFL Star Jason McCourty Shares Game Day and Holiday Traditions

 

NFL Star Jason McCourty is an inspiration both on and off the field.

 

The McCourty family ties are strong, and their story is unique. Devin and Jason McCourty were born 27 minutes apart in 1987. Their father died when they were three years old. As youngsters, they promised each other they’d get scholarships to college to ease their mother’s financial burden, and they did – playing football together at Rutgers University.

 

Devin and Jason’s perseverance to succeed is one of the most important lessons their mother Phyllis Harrell instilled in them. She told them while there’s always going to be adversity, how you deal with it is what makes the difference.

 

Her words of wisdom paid off in a big way. Today, Jason has a successful career playing for the Tennessee Titans while his brother Devin plays for the New England Patriots.

 

 

The twins and their mom say football is not only their way of life, it is a part of their family too. Jason and his mom joined me recently to talk about Game Day and holiday traditions that helped create their strong family memories. They also discussed their love for football, and how a partnership with a special video shoot brought the entire family together and created lasting memories.
