The American footballer’s story forms the second installment in the series by GQ Sports and Gucci.
Jalen Ramsey never takes the easy road. Nor the quiet one. Since his grand entrance into the NFL during his dazzling rookie season in 2016, Ramsey has cemented himself as one of the most unmissable cornerbacks in American football.
Jalen Ramsey’s story is the subject of the new episode of A Hero’s Journey, the series of films created in collaboration with GQ Sports. Each chapter explores the lives of modern sporting icons, asking them to share their often-challenging road to the top, while showcasing key looks from the latest Cruise 2023 collection as well as signature travel pieces.
In episode two, directed by Ebeneza Blanche, Ramsey reminisces about the start of his journey, his biggest influences, the importance of family, and his future goals.
“I find him as a person, on and off the field, truly inspirational,” says the director of the film. “I wanted to highlight that in a way that hasn’t been done before.” For Ramsey, it’s always about the process. “I'm happier when I fall in love with the journey, instead of the result," says the 28 year old star, who collaborated closely with Blanche. "That's when I'm able to affect people in the best way possible."
