After a few years in the NFL, former Nebraska football player Trevor Roach has decided to hang up the cleats and call it a career.
There are jobs that aren’t jobs, passions they call them. You can show up, pour your blood, your sweat and your tears into something for ungodly hours but it’s all worth it. That’s what football was for Roach.

“Once I realized I didn’t love football like I used to, it wasn’t worth going forward,” Roach said. “The money’s good, but that’s not why I got into it. When I started showing up and it felt like work, that’s when I knew it was time,” Roach told Bengals.com’s Geoff Hobson.
Roach also wasn’t a fan of seeing broken the broken down bodies of colleagues.
“I want to start my own career and I’ve seen guys play for 10 years and have their bodies beat up and I didn’t want to do that.”
