After a 20 Year Professional Career, Warren Moon Had a Game Plan Post-Retirement

 

Key Points:

  • Warren Moon had a 20 year professional career in the NFL and CFL.
  • He founded Sports 1 Marketing after hanging up his helmet.
  • Moon’s life could’ve turned out differently after growing up fatherless in Los Angeles.

Commentary:

On this episode of Game Changers, Host Katie Steinberg talked with Warren Moon about his post-retirement game plan. Moon played 20 years in the NFL and CFL before hanging up his cleats to found Sports 1 Marketing, a global sports and entertainment marketing agency that leverages over $20 billion in relationship capital and over 38 years of business experience, bringing athletes, celebrities and businesses together to make a lot of money, help a lot of people, and have a lot of fun.

To understand Warren Moon, you must first go back to when he was a child in Los Angeles. Moon lost his father when he was seven but had a ton of support from his six sisters and his mom. In many ways, this was an advantage, as this feminine presence taught him how to cook, clean, sew, and even iron his clothes.

“But, when it came to fixing a car or doing a tune-up, or changing the oil, or anything to do with mechanical work, I had no clue because I didn’t have that type of guidance around me,” Moon said.

His mom noticed these disadvantages and put him in Boy Scouts and sports where he would have a male presence. These coaches and mentors took away some of the sting of not having a dad, as these men helped step into that role.

“I came up at a time where, especially the area we lived, there was a lot of violence and lot of gangs, and I could have easily gone that direction,” Moon said.
