We finally got Marc Edwards back on Down the Line after technical difficulties sacked the interview three weeks ago. Don’t ask me why the first topic of the day was Sex & the City, but it got better very quickly. Derek Brown is one of few players with this trifecta – National Champion (1988), 1st Team All-America (1991) & 1st Round NFL Draft Pick (1992 – New York Giants Pick #14). He also sounds like a veteran R&B deejay on the phone – smooth. Their separate interviews are below, here is the full episode of Down the Line:
Marc Edwards Interview - The conversation jumped around quite a bit from his high school realizations about a Notre Dame degree and the choice to go with Holtz over Ohio State to whether or not Ray Lewis in his prime was the hardest MLB to block in the NFL. He also discusses his charity involvement with the Kaity’s Way Dublin Trip and his recent book – From Blue Collar, Ohio to Super Bowl Champion. Lou Holtz and his impact on Edwards makes its usual appearance in an interview with one of his former players and lastly – we find out what hairstyle Marc is rocking in 2012.
Derek Brown - His appearance starts off with the native Floridian seemed destined to be a Gator or Hurricane before a bout with independence. Brown breaks down how much he relished those Miami match-ups of lore and what the 1988 National Championship season’s wild ride was like. Brown, like many former players, is involved with some great charities and he fills the audience in on their efforts and how to get involved. Kaity’s Way & Paul Newman’s Serious Fun Camp. I ended the interview by asking him about the lineage of Tight Ends at Notre Dame and he goes into his thoughts on the modernization of the position.
