Watch: Joshua Perry Speaks To Ohio State During Today's "Real Life Wednesday"

Former Ohio State linebacker Joshua Perry was one of two speakers at today's "Real Life Wednesday."

Perry, who played for the Los Angeles Chargers last season when they were still in San Diego, helped facilitate a discussion on race and the role it plays in American society today.

Perry also spoke about the responsibility every OSU player has, regardless of race, to surpass the stereotypes people have set for student-athletes.

"Real Life Wednesdays" is a program Urban Meyer instituted in Columbus where OSU players take in guest lectures from CEOs, business professionals, former and current athletes and others to prepare for life beyond football.

Former Rutgers and Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was a recent guest as well.
