Longtime NFL wide receiver Pierre Garcon took to the skys, gutting out his first skydive over Santa Cruz, California. Garcon who, like most professional athletes, keeps a hardcore training schedule, used one of his recent rest days to take his inaugural plunge from thirteen thousand or so feet. Garcon was strapped to a professional skydiver and claimed he “was good until they opened the door.”
If we judged him by his freefall face in the photos he posted, it might be safe to assume his first jump was also his last. But given the huge smile he’s rocking once the canopy opens, I think Pierre might be up for another few jumps.
Known for his toughness and durability on the field, we can now count Garcon as a member of the #DieLiving community off of it.
