Athlete and Actor Eric Ways Says Fear is His Worst Enemy

Eric Ways was recruited to the University of Notre Dame on full scholarship for Track and Field after graduating as a state champion in the 300m and 500m dash ranking fourth and fifth in the United States, respectively. He has a school record at Notre Dame in the 4X400 meter relay that he helped set as a freshman at the NCAA National Track and Field Championship. Ways is more than just an athlete — he is an actor who was cast in his first feature film at age 19. Here, he explains why he will never let fear stand in the way of what he wants to accomplish.
