Scott Hanson played collegiate football for a short time. Hanson is most recognized for his work on NFL Sundays, but he also played football in high school and college. Growing up in Rochester, Michigan, Hanson was an enthusiastic football fan and player. He lettered three times in football at Monroe High School and was drafted by the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League (CFL) after graduating. Hanson never played pro ball because he broke his ankle during a practice session and was unable to recover in time for the start of the season.
He later signed with the Detroit Lions as a free agent but was released before the start of the season. After his brief career in college, Hanson got into broadcasting and today works NFL games on Sunday mornings on ESPN.
In addition to his work on NFL Sundays, Hanson has been involved in several other sports throughout his life. He began working with the radio station WJR in Detroit during the 1940s and became one of the first sportscasters to be broadcast live via radio. In the 1950s, he moved to television and worked various events including tennis, golf, and auto racing. In 1970, Hanson joined the NFL network as a color analyst for college football games and has remained with the network since then.
Hanson has two children with his wife Marjorie; a son, John, and a daughter, Joanne.
Davis played football for Syracuse University coach Ben Schwartzwalder from 1959 to 1961, and he rose to national prominence in each of those three seasons, twice earning first-team All-American accolades. At the time, college football had restricted substitution regulations, and players played both offense and defense. In 1960, his last season at Syracuse, Davis led the nation in scoring with 141 points. He was drafted by the Chicago Bears but chose instead to continue his career with the New York Titans of the American Football League (ALF).
In the ALF's first season, 1962, Davis was voted most valuable player (MVP) after posting 766 yards and 10 touchdowns on 125 carries (6.7 avg.) and 42 catches for 518 yards and five more scores (11.4 avg.). He also returned kicks and punts. The Titans finished with a 9-3 record and advanced to the AFL Championship Game before losing to the Houston Oilers.
In April 1963, the NFL announced that it would admit two new teams, the Dallas Cowboys and the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Titans were not interested in joining the NFL because they wanted to retain their status as an ALF team. However, when the two leagues made a joint agreement that prevented any team from being admitted to both leagues at the same time, the Titans were forced to give up on their dream of playing in the NFL and accepted an offer from the Canadian Football League's Montreal Alouettes.
Tim Scott (born January 25, 1993) is a free agent in the National Football League. He attended North Carolina University and played football there.
He is a cornerback who first set foot on an NFL field when he was selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the seventh round of the 2015 NFL Draft.
Scott made his debut in the season opener against his former team, the North Carolina Tar Heels. He recorded three tackles as the Bucs lost 17-16.
He was traded to the New York Jets and later released. Then he joined the Pittsburgh Steelers for the last four games of the season. He finished with 26 tackles and two interceptions.
After his rookie season, many experts predicted that Scott would become at least a backup corner in the NFL. But after suffering a knee injury in training camp, he was forced to start the 2015 season on the physically unable to perform list. When he returned from injury in November, he was passed over by some teams and didn't receive any interest from others. It looked like he would remain with the Bucs for another year, but after signing with the Chicago Bears, they decided not to bring him back.
Childhood and college Matthews grew up in a football family. Clay Matthews Sr. was a member of the NFL in the 1950s. He played on two championship teams - the 1953 Chicago Bears and the 1960 Green Bay Packers - and was named to the Pro Bowl after his first season with the Bears.
Clay Jr. is one of only three players in NFL history to score multiple touchdowns through the air, on the ground, and in kickoff returns. He did it twice: in 2011 and 2012. The other player to do this is former Packer Michael Bennett.
Both parents were members of the pro basketball league as well. They had 10 children together and all but one (who died as an infant) played sports at some point during their childhoods. Five of them still play in the NFL today: Clay Jr., Carl, Greg, Chuck, and Mike.
I believe the oldest son to date who hasn't played in the NFL is 29 years old. His name is Chad and he plays baseball for the Atlanta Braves.
So yes, Clay Matthews' father played in the NFL too. He's on the books as a running back for the Chicago Bears and also returned kicks as a rookie in 1958.
Hanson is a national journalist for NFL Network and the host of NFL RedZone, which he began in the autumn of 2009. During the week, Hanson also co-anchors NFL Total Access. He joined NFL Network in early 2007 after working as a field producer for ESPN's SportsCenter and ABC's World News Tonight.
Before joining ESPN, Hanson worked as a sports reporter for WJZ-TV in Baltimore from 2003 to 2006. While at WJZ, he covered the Maryland Terrapins football team and major sports events such as the NBA Finals and MLB World Series.
Hanson graduated from Syracuse University in 1993 with a bachelor's degree in journalism. He was a three-year letterman on the Syracuse University basketball team.
He is married to Jennifer Hanson and they have one son together. They live in Brooklyn, New York.
Bill Walsh (born 1927) was an American football player at the University of Notre Dame and a National Football League player and coach. Bill Walsh (1931-2007) was an American football coach who led the San Francisco 49ers and Stanford University. He was named the NFL Coach of the Year after leading his team to the first undefeated season in NFL history.
He played for two seasons with the 49ers, appearing in 20 games and starting 10. The most memorable moment of his career came when he replaced Joe Montana as the starter in 1983. With him at the helm, the 49ers won two Super Bowl titles within five years. After being fired by the 49ers, he returned to Notre Dame as head coach in 2004 and led them to their first national championship in 23 years. He has been voted into both the College Football Hall of Fame and the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Walsh's son Kyle is also a football coach. He has served as the offensive coordinator for both of his fathers' teams - the 49ers and Stanford. He has not followed his father into coaching after retiring from football after the 1995 season.
