Perry Tuttle | In Before Dark (While I Can)
Do what you can, while you can. Clemson football great Perry Tuttle is slowly losing his sight. In preparation, he asked each of his children what they would like him to see them do before he lost his sight. His advice is powerful and meaningful.
Celebrating meaningful relationships and life markers. Perry shares his intentional pursuit of creating opportunities to follow through on those events that matter to him. This is the talk you need to see from TEDxGreenville. The ending will amaze you with a very special moment.
Perry was a first round draft pick in the 1982 NFL draft and played 10 years of pro football (NFL & CFL).
