176. 4D Athletes Podcast | Thriving Through Transitions in Life & Sports

With the growing lack of life skills being taught, athletes are unequipped for adulthood which is causing major issues especially with mental health. We at 4D Athletes have developed online programs to better equip individuals for life both in and out of sports.

Check out this demo link on “The Power of a Positive Attitude” to see how we are helping athletes Win in the Game of Life!

In this episode of the I Am A Champion show, the guys are joined by Coaches Steven McRoberts, and Taj Dashaun to discuss how we can thrive through transitions in both life and sports.

In 25 years as a collegiate head coach, including 17 at the Division I level, Steven McRoberts owns a 619-265 (.700) overall record with 23 winning seasons and 19 years with 20 or more victories. He ended the 2021 season ranked 19th among active Division I coaches in total victories and 26th in winning percentage.

A 10-time conference coach of the year, McRoberts’ teams have won a combined 13 conference regular season, tournament, and national postseason tournament titles. He has mentored a total of 20 All-Americans, 70 all-conference players, 11 conference players of the year, 12 Academic All-Americans, and 29 total specialty award winners at the conference level.

McRoberts came to Missouri State after a six-year tenure at Ole Miss, where he posted a 111-82 record and guided the Rebels to the 2017 National Invitational Volleyball Championship title, the first postseason national championship for any program in the school’s history.

He has also coached at the University of Tulsa, University of Central Arkansas, and Lubbock Christian University.

He has been married for 18 years to his lovely bride, Stacy, and they have three kids: Jackson (17), Mollie (14), and Nate (9)

Taj Dashaun is an Author, Speaker, and Athlete Transition Coach. When his football career ended, Taj struggled heavily with depression. Because he was so focused on the game, he never fully developed a clear vision for his life. After several years of stumbling around in the emotional darkness of uncertainty, Taj began to take his eyes off of himself and focus on serving others.

He now runs holistic programs for retired athletes who, like he once was, are struggling to adapt to life after the game. Not only does Taj help former players land jobs and start businesses, he helps them find fulfillment in every area of their lives. It's become his personal mission and passion to reach out and help others overcome the fear, frustration and uncertainty associated with life post-athletics. Taj is also the host of the Thrive After Sports podcast, which is available on all podcast platforms.
