‘Huddle Up with Gus’: Ex-NFL QB Heath Shuler discusses small-town upbringing, political career


Life in small-town North Carolina is probably what you think it is.

A football, baseball and track and field star, Heath Shuler was a multi-time high school state champion in multiple sports.

He also hunted in the North Carolina mountains with family and friends, some of his fondest memories.

Shuler joins Gus Frerotte and Dave Hager in this week’s “Huddle Up with Gus” podcast to discuss his small-town upbringing. How did a small-town quarterback wrangle playing football for a major Division I school in front of nearly 100,000 fans?

Shuler also discusses his NFL career, his contract holdout with the Washington Redskins and his transition into politics.

Listen to the full episode below.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
