founder & owner

I was born in Stillwater Oklahoma to Charles Rush and Pamala Heard as the oldest of three, along with my brother Jamian and my sister Bonnae. Today, I host a podcast called Like Father Like Son about different parts of our lives both personally and professionally. During my early childhood, I traveled around the country because of my parents' employment opportunities before settling in Jackson, Mississippi. After graduating from Terry High School, I attended Tulane University as a student-athlete. I graduated in four years with a Neuroscience degree and minors in Psychology and Sociology, focusing on sports and sports-related brain injuries. In addition to being a committed and dedicated student, I also participated as a Wide Receiver for the Green Wave football team, and a Sprinter on the Track team. A major accomplishment that I was lucky to receive was being named captain of the Tulane Green Wave Football team.

Unfortunately, during a breakout senior season, I tore my ACL. The injury halted my football career but strengthened my mental and physical framework. This gave me time to reflect and focus, even more, on life after sports. This incident gave "birth & life" to XRElite. After my recovery, I taught at a school in Arkansas, where I was mentored by Coach Lockhart. Through our conversations, he encouraged me to secure my personal and performance training certification. Not long after beginning my teaching tenure, I was offered an opportunity to compete for a roster spot with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2016, which I gladly accepted. A year later, I was signed as a free agent by the New Orleans Saints. Following my time on the Saints, I joined the Alliance of American Football (AAF). I share my story of persistence to encourage others and reinforce to them that failure is never a final destination! 

Always remain DETERMINED, HUMBLE, HUNGRY, FAITHFUL, and relay POSITIVE energy!
