Episode Info:

Tony Romo, winner of the prestigious Walter Payton award for outstanding division 1-AA football player, and a consensus All- American, he was an undrafted rookie out of Eastern Illinois University when he signed with the Dallas Cowboys as an extra quarterback for practice drills. He hung around long enough to make the team and get a chance as a backup quarterback which he grabbed on to and never looked back. One of the highest rated quarterbacks ever, holder of numerous team and NFL records, and considered one of the gutsiest and smartest quarterbacks to ever play the game. He was forced to retire due to a compression fracture in his spine or he would still be playing. But his loss has been our gain- soon after retiring he landed in the CBS broadcast booth where every football fan in American has marveled at his incredible ability to know what plays teams are going to call next from both the offensive and defensive side of the ball, which has created a whole new level of fun and excitement in our television experience of the NFL and set a new gold standard for broadcasting sports. Tony Romo is a perfect example of the old adage- "the cream always rises to the top." He didn't have the high profile college career many others had, but there was no denying his talent once he stepped on the field as he outperformed big time first round draft picks his entire career. Never give up, never doubt your abilities, grab onto opportunities when they show up and you'll rise to the top just like Tony Romo. For more information go to https://www.drphilintheblanks.com/
