Joey Logano and LeBron James are two of the top athletes in their respective sports, and neither one of them has a college degree. They clearly see the value in one, though.
Logano and James have both teamed up with Verizon for its #WeNeedMore campaign, which is aimed at encouraging children to consider careers in science, technology, engineering and math.
“You never know what’s going to happen, and it’s smart to have a backup plan Coming from someone who didn’t have a backup plan,” Logano said, via NBC Sports. “Take it from my experience, I really put all my eggs in one basket.
“I don’t have a backup plan. There’s good and bad from that. I was able to focus 100 percent on something and not have a distraction. Also it forced me to make sure it worked. So I guess that’s the positive, but I’ll be the first to say that probably wasn’t the smartest way.”
Verizon launched the campaign April 1 with a 60-second TV spot featuring James, Drew Brees, Karl-Anthony Towns, David Villa and Adriana Lima. The extended version of the commercial was posted to YouTube on Monday featuring Logano in the place of James.
