With nearly a month to go until he’s due to report for the start of training camp with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Antonio Brown will be taking to the road for the next three weeks as part of the Nike Destroy Doubt Tour. A trip that will see him visit six high schools teams in six different states.
Hoping to inspire the next generation of athletes, Brown will surprise students when he joins them for practice to give them some tips and share his story.
Beatin up the road! I’m going on tour tomorrow! I’ve been doubted my entire career. Told I was too small or not enough. But I used that doubt as motivation to be better. Tomorrow, I’m taking my story on the road and surprising teams in 6 states to chase their dreams. Will it be yours? #JustDoIt #Boomin #DestroytheDoubtTour #Callgod
Set to visit Florida, Texas, Missouri, Illinois, and California before his final stop back in Pennsylvania, Brown was at Traz Powell Stadium on the Miami Dade College campus on Saturday, according to his Instagram account.
Doubted by many college scouts coming out of high school, and again by many NFL scouts before being selected by Pittsburgh in the sixth-round of the 2010 draft, the Steelers’ star receiver is sure to be able to offer the students some insight into overcoming the negative outside voices.
For anyone foolish enough to doubt whether Brown will be ready for training camp if he’s out on the road talking to students, they might like to know that he still posted a number of gruelling workout videos on his Instagram account just hours after spending the day at Traz Powell Stadium.
