Former Syracuse Orange and New York Giants star David Tyree calls in to discuss his new business venture, kneeling during the national anthem in the NFL, and his miracle helmet catch in Super Bowl 42 with Wes Cheng on The Juice on the Cuse podcast hosted by TJO editor in chief Brad Bierman then calls in to chat about preseason awards for Andre Szmyt and Cisco.

Here are the highlights from the show:

Wesley Cheng: I can’t believe it, but the 2007 Super Bowl to now, it’s been 13 years since your incredible helmet catch. You’ve done so much since then. You’ve written a book called “More Than Just The Catch.” You’ve worked in the NFL front office. You’re about to start a business. But do people still stop you on the street and ask about the catch all this time later?

David Tyree: They do. And I have the ability to whisk away into the shadows. My life has seen such purpose beyond football and ‘The Catch.’ I’ve realized that ‘The Catch’ was about establishing a platform where I could serve other people. From an inspirational standpoint, that catch has meant so many things to so many different people. That’s the coolest thing about it. Now being a part of that history for the New York Giants and the NFL community, it goes so far above and beyond. It’s a privilege and an honor. It’s not something you can plan for. It’s a gift from God and I do my best to steward it. Big shout out to all the football fans, Cuse fans, Giants fans, and football fans all together to be a part of the conversation.
