Austin Ekeler On Kevin Hart’s “Cold As Balls”

Austin Ekeler On Kevin Hart's "Cold As Balls"

Chargers Austin Ekeler says Nick Chubb, Derrick Henry, Christian McCaffrey, and himself are the best RBs in the NFL on Kevin Hart’s “Cold as Balls”.

We at VannDigital share this week’s newest episode of Cold As Balls from LOL Network starring guest Austin Ekeler.

The 2021 Touchdown Leader joins Kevin Hart to chat about what it was like to go into the NFL blind from a D2 school, being ecstatic about his $5,000 signing bonus, and the Chargers coach not knowing his name until the 4th preseason game.

Ekeler also gives us his Mt. Rushmore of RBs!!!

Some highlights from the episode include:

  • Austin says he had no idea he was good enough to go to the NFL until he was in the top 2 at Pro Day because he was at a D2 school and no one around him had a career beyond college (2:23-3:04)
  • Ekeler remembers the day he was drafted by the Charges and how he was so excited about a $5k signing bonus (5:42-6:24)
  • Ekeler relays that it took 4 preseason games for the head coach Anthony Lynn to even know his name. After watching film, Lynn said, “Hey, who’s #3 out there?” (6:54-7:17)
  • Austin tells Kevin his Mount Rushmore of running backs playing right now: Nick Chubb, Derrick Henry, Christian McCaffrey, and of course, himself (10:56-11:13)

New episodes of Cold As Balls will now air every Tuesday on the LOL Network YouTube channel. Upcoming guests include John Wall, Kelsey Plum, and Patrick Beverley.
