Episode Description

Jack Soslow did not play football until his senior year in high school. However his gifted leg strength earned him a spot on the UPENN's men's football team. The 2017 Ivy League place kicker went on to become a high scorer for Penn, and transition into something else he had a passion for... gaming. After a stint with Oculus Jack is now an investor at legendary venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz.
