Ohio State Buckeye great gets real on being a Buckeye and becoming an entrepreneur. In this episode, we chat with Chimdi Chekwa, a current NFL free agent and entrepreneur. The discussion focuses in on life in the NFL, sports and business, and the Ohio State Buckeyes culture.
Chimdi is a former Ohio State Buckeyes football player and current entrepreneur as a co-owner of The Pit BBQ Grille in Columbus, Ohio. He also has his hands in other ventures that we touch on in this chat.
You may remember Chimdi from his days with the Ohio State Buckeyes, where he was a first-team All American cornerback. After college, Chimdi was drafted in the fourth round by the Oakland Raiders in the 2011 NFL Draft.
Through much perseverance and motivation, Chimdi gives us insight around why he is so passionate about sports and entrepreneurship. And of course, we discuss all things Buckeyes and college football.
With our love of business and sports (and Eric’s deep-rooted Buckeye background), we are obviously excited to feature Chimdi Chekwa on the SportsEpreneur Podcast.
