ATLANTA - Former NFL all-star and Georgia native Takeo Spikes sat down with Good Day Atlanta's Alyse Eady to talk about this new photography book, "Behind The Mask."
The two-time Pro Bowl selection and a two-time All-Pro completed his NFL career with the San Diego Chargers in 2012. Since hanging up his helmet, he has become an analyst for NFL and college, a radio host for Sirius XM NFL and pursued his love for photography, all while earning an Executive MBA from the University of Miami.
"Behind the Mask" profiles linebackers such as London Fletcher, Harry Carson, Ted Hendricks, Bobby Bell, Rickey Jackson, Willie Lanier, Kevin Greene, Mike Singletary, Derrick Brooks, Cornelius Bennett, Takeo Spikes and the late Chuck Bednarik.
The average career of an NFL player is three years, but those profiled in "Behind the Mask" played for 10 to 15 years.
The book is a combination of portraits, personal narrative, and original photography. You can order your copy at behindthemaskbook.com
