Podcast part 2: Chris Long recalls ‘shenanigans’ as a kid, college recruiting
Recently retired NFL veteran Chris Long talks about the “shenanigans” he got into with friends while growing up, the value of hard work as a three-sport athlete in high school and getting recruited before settling on Virginia during Part 2 of this week’s “Huddle Up with Gus” podcast.
Long, son of Pro Football Hall of Famer Howie Long, won back-to-back Super Bowls with the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles after having played his first eight years with the St. Louis Rams.
The Rams drafted Long second overall in the 2008 NFL Draft out of Virginia.
Long finished his career with 70 career sacks and 15 forced fumbles and played in 162 of 176 possible games, starting 103 games.
Each week, former Ford City High School standout and NFL quarterback Gus Frerotte sits down with guests to discuss how sports have shaped their lives.
