Chef Jarvis Green is an SEC football star, former New England Patriots defensive lineman, and Superbowl champ who now runs a successful shrimp company. Two years after Green retired from the NFL, he offered to help a friend by working in his New Orleans Shrimphouse. His tasks included sweeping, mopping, shrimp peeling, and driving delivery trucks. Green, who majored in construction management while playing football at LSU, called it a course in “Shrimping 101.” During his two and a half years at New Orleans Shrimphouse, Green rose to VP of Sales and successfully pushed products in almost 2,000 stores. Years later, Green, who wore No. 97 for the Patriots, started his own sustainable shrimp and seafood supply company called Oceans 97. Recipe: Touchdown Tacos and NOLA inspired Shrimp and Grits.
