Heisman Trophy-Winning Quarterback Doug Flutie Featured on ‘A Football Life’

‘Doug Flutie: A Football Life’ Premieres Friday, October 17 at 9:00 PM ET on NFL Network

“Doug turns his weakness into his strength. Being short made him great. It made him bigger than everyone else in a way.” – Ian Thomsen

“When you are 6’4 you have to prove that you can’t play. When you are 5’10 you have to prove that you can play.” – Laurie Flutie

Former National Football League and Canadian Football League quarterback Doug Flutie is still regarded as one of the most beloved quarterbacks in football history. The Heisman Trophy-winner first entered the spotlight when he completed a “Hail Mary” touchdown pass in a game against the University of Miami in 1984 – considered one of the greatest moments in college football history. While people doubted his success as a professional quarterback due to his height, Flutie had a successful 21-year career and was inducted to both the College Football Hall of Fame (2007) and Canadian Football Hall of Fame (2008).
