Exploring Life & Business with Victor Rogers of The DB Lab

Today we’d like to introduce you to Victor Rogers.

Hi Victor, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I played football all my life and like most young black men, thought that being in the NFL was the only way to get myself and my family out of our oppressed circumstances. After spending five years as a dual-sport athlete at McNeese State University, after graduation, I bought a $200 one-way ticket to California to pursue a professional career in the NFL. I spent years going through several NFL tryouts while playing in other professional football leagues. In 2011, the NFL lockout ended my NFL opportunities, so I chose to instead focus my passion for football on building a coaching career. I’ve spent over ten years building one of the best football coaching programs in the country. I train athletes of all ages and have taken multiple athletes to the highest level of the sport. And I’m just getting started.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
My journey has not been smooth, but I wouldn’t change a single road bump. I don’t look at my struggles as struggles but as lessons that I was taught to prepare me for and propel toward the reality, I am experiencing today. I grew up in a single-family home. Survived Hurricane Katrina AND Rita and struggled with an underserved education system. I’ve had the opportunity to use these and countless other situations as excuses, but I instead used them as platforms to reach my goals and the motivation to reach BACK and help others in similar situations.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
