A former NFL center, Randy Grimes lived as everyone’s all-American—with a successful 10-year career for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a beautiful and devoted college-sweetheart-turned-wife, and two healthy children. But pain took over, and the prescription pills used to treat chronic injuries eventually led to playing in blackouts. When Randy’s career ended, the pills continued feeding an opioid addiction that would last 20+ years and erode his identity, health, and family. When addiction claimed the life of a close friend, Randy finally found the courage to raise his hand and ask for help. This single decision reclaimed Randy’s life.
Randy Grimes speaks regularly on topics related to addiction—as well as valuable lessons learned on and off the field. As a 10-year NFL player, Randy knows success—as well as devastation.
His book, which will be released in 2020, OFF CENTERx, weaves the story of destruction to redemption, a miracle that happened because of the powerful intervention involving his entire family and the death of a close friend. They saved his life.
Randy presents to all different types of audiences and is frequently accompanied by his wife Lydia who is a Certified Family Addiction Coach and also a keynote presenter.
