What Does Ben Share About?
How To Increase Grit in Your Life — Seahawk Style

Ben Malcolmson is in his eighth season as special assistant to Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll after serving in a similar role under Carroll for three years at USC.   As a reporter for the USC student newspaper, Ben tried out for the team to write a feature article about walk-ons, and miraculously ended up earning a roster spot as a wide receiver and played one storybook season for the #1 Trojans.  

Ben will share some of the most valuable lessons he has learned from Coach Carroll and provide insights how the Seahawks incorporate GRIT and the power of competition to build a winning team. 
Walk On: The Utterly Amazing Story of Football, Faith, and Purpose

With only one season of Pop Warner experience in the fifth grade, Ben Malcolmson surprised himself and countless others when he became a member of the No. 1-ranked USC Trojans during his senior year in college.  As a sports writer for the Daily Trojan, USC’s student newspaper, Ben tried out for the team to write a humorous feature article about walk-ons and miraculously ended up earning a roster spot as a wide receiver.  Ben was both thrilled and curious, sensing a divinely inspired reason.  His body would be battered, his perseverance tested, and his heart broken.  Ben’s inspiring story of purpose and hope will leave you standing in awe of an utterly amazing God.
