At Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys, we believe in the power of stories and the strength of connections. Our latest episode of “Grubbin’ with G” takes us to the heart of Louisiana, where we interview with Tigers Football quarterback, Garrett Nussmeier. Recorded at Phil’s Oyster Bar, the episode unveils insights into Garrett’s life, his family’s profound ties to football, and his future aspirations.
Life on the Move
Garrett’s life has been a whirlwind of change, marked by 11 relocations growing up due to his father’s demanding job as a football coach. Despite the constant moving, Garrett’s home and heart have always remained in Louisiana, especially his hometown, Lake Charles.
The Quarterback Advantage
Garrett’s father, a former NFL quarterback, and now the quarterback coach for the Los Angeles Chargers, played a significant role in his football journey. His father’s illustrious coaching career has granted Garrett a unique perspective, having experienced the intensity of Death Valley from both sides, as the son of a former college coach and now as a Tigers’ quarterback.
Garrett has a distinct advantage as a star quarterback given his father’s experience. Despite this, he mentions that his father never interferes with what his coaches were teaching. Instead, he leaves room for one-on-one coaching sessions with him.
While Garrett considered other colleges, he knew he wanted to play in the SEC. He shares that it would have taken something significant to pull him away from playing at LSU. For him, the difference between playing for his high school and playing in the SEC is “like driving a Honda versus a Mercedes” – the competition and intensity are on a whole different level.
When asked about the best defensive player he’s ever faced, Garrett instantly acknowledges Maason Smith, a former Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) partner of Gordon, who makes a brief appearance during the episode. Garrett shares that he and Maason have been roommates for three years.
Garrett then announces his plans to move in with his cousin, Gavin Guidry, another former NIL partner of Gordon from the Tigers Baseball team. The discussion illustrates the interconnected web of relationships connected to Garrett and Gordon.
Garrett has big dreams and ambitions. He wants to win a national championship while in college and pursue a career in the NFL. In his ideal situation, he would have a successful NFL career and later either coach or use his mass communication degree to work in broadcasting.
We gain insights into Garrett’s personal preferences as well. His favorite music artists include George Strait and NBA Youngboy. When it comes to books, he fondly recalls the Magic Tree House series from his childhood.
In conclusion, “Grubbin’ with G” offers a captivating glimpse into LSU Tigers quarterback Garrett Nussmeier’s life and aspirations. His unique family background, unwavering ties to Louisiana, and commitment to excellence on and off the field make him an inspiring figure in college football.
