In Overdrive at Over Time- Consistently Doing More Than What’s Expected
Personal excellence begins with doing more than what’s expected more than what the terms of the contract specify. The NFL is not for the faint-hearted, you must be over-the-top crazy, hyper-intense, super-focused, and totally dedicated. Doing more than the minimum; never focusing on the language in the contract or the strict construction of the suggested workout. It’s all about doing more—run more, lift more, study more.

Alan later joined the Dallas Cowboys, who sought leadership and experience for their offensive line, and remained in Dallas for two seasons where he became a Super Bowl champion in 1993. Alan’s versatility and athletic proficiency as an offensive lineman resulted in his playing every position on the offensive line but center.
