Colorado football commit Gage Goldberg, the son of WWE and WCW legend/former NFL defensive lineman Bill Goldberg, explained the advantages of having performed with his father in front of 50,000+ fans before.

“It was obviously amazing and it definitely helped me get more acclimated to the big crowds and help with not being nervous,” Gage said (h/t BuffZone). “I don’t feel like I feel as much pressure as other people do and I just go out there and wing it sometimes.”

Gage, who committed to CU on January 14, said that he wants to step out of his father's mighty shadow and forge his own legacy; something he may well say sometime in the future under the WWE umbrella himself.

“The good thing about it, I have a legacy already, but I’m also creating my own legacy and that lets me set this unreal totem pole for myself to try to strive for and try to be better than him,” Gage said. “I’m using his legacy to make my own legacy and using him as a launch.”

Gage Goldberg's reason for committing to Colorado football

Gage explained to BuffsBeat why the University of Colorado was his choice following Nick Saban's retirement.

"The main draw was that Colorado has an amazing coaching staff and obviously a great head coach that will help me excel in every way to become a better football player, and eventually to get me to the next level," Gage said.

Gage believes he's already in love with his college choice.

"My dad's advice was go to the program that stands out to you the most and the one you know that you will love. I already know at this moment that I will love Colorado and it will also be great to be learning from one of my dad’s best friends ever."
