Description

FSU’s rise to college football prominence in the 80s wouldn’t have been possible without quarterbacks whose names still resonate with Nole fans over 40: Rick Stockstill, Kelly Lowrey, Chip Ferguson, Casey Weldon, Peter Tom Willis and Danny McManus — an unbroken line of brothers in arms, one after the other through the decade. The outlier of the group, though, is McManus, who continued lighting up scoreboards for another 19 years. Call him the Dan Marino of the Canadian Football League after passing for 53,255 yards. Today, his football career is in overtime as Assistant General Manager and Director of U.S. Scouting for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. But the years haven’t dimmed Danny’s memories about his time at FSU and playing for Coach Bowden. As you’ll hear in this episode, he’s also a humble guy who’s grateful for every one of those seasons playing the game he loves.
