About this Episode

On Episode 13, Sam and Jack talk with former Iowa QB Ricky Stanzi on his playing career and what he's up to today. They start with talking about Ricky's introduction to Iowa football and Coach Kirk Ferentz and what it took to be a quarterback for the Hawkeyes. After highlighting some specific college games and moments in Ricky's career, they touch on the 2010 Orange Bowl victory versus Georgia Tech, the Senior Bowl, NFL Combine, and the draft process. Then, Ricky talks honestly about some of the QB rooms he was apart of, the organizations he experienced during his NFL time, football up north in Canada, and how he began to transition from on-field participation to behind the scenes, injury-prevention participation, including talking through Saquan Barkley's and Nick Bosa's ACL tears.
