After turning down Harvard to walk on at Stanford, Greg Camarillo signed with the San Diego Chargers as an undrafted free agent in 2005. While with the Chargers, Camarillo was relegated to special teams duties, however in 2007, former Chargers offensive coordinator, Cam Cameron, took the helm in Miami and claimed Greg off of waivers. Camarillo caught just 8 passes for 160 yards that season, however one of those catches became the play that would define his seven-year NFL career. The Dolphins begin the ’07 season with 13 consecutive losses but on December 16, Miami quarterback Cleo Lemon connected with Camarillo on a 64-yard touchdown pass in overtime against the Baltimore Ravens, clinching the team’s first and only win of the season. In The Tank, Greg reflects on his game winning catch that has cemented his place in Dolphins history, sharing what led up to that moment and how that singular play has impacted the rest of his life. He also opens up about the difficulties of being traded, the importance of having a parking pass when entering Hard Rock Stadium on game day, being inspired by words of wisdom from Michael Jordan, and explains why he is a legend of O.J. McDuffie’s Grand Ghoul Halloween event.
Born in Detroit, Bart Scott overcame long odds to star at Southern Illinois University. Scott was not selected in the 2002 NFL Draft and eventually signed with the Baltimore Ravens, quickly becoming a special teams standout. Following a Ray Lewis injury in 2005, Scott saw his playing time and production increase, a prelude to the best season in his career the following year. In 2006, Scott started every game for the Ravens, finishing with a career-high 145 tackles, 9.5 sacks and two interceptions en route to a Pro Bowl appearance. From 2009 through 2012, Scott played for the New York Jets, eventually teaming with Miami Dolphins legend, Jason Taylor, in 2010. Upon his retirement from football, Scott began a successful media career, including a two-year stint on The NFL Today on CBS as well as his current role as a mid-day host on ESPN New York radio. In this episode, Bart becomes the first person with no Miami Dolphins affiliation to dive in The Fish Tank. He reveals what he believes to be the Dolphins secret weapon, shares a behind-the-scenes look at how the 2008 Baltimore Ravens become the most successful defenders of Miami’s Wildcat offense but also remembers with great disdain what it felt like to lose to the 0-13 Dolphins in 2007. Finally, Bart gives OJ and Seth the real story behind his famous “Can’t Wait” moment.
Keith Jackson, a 2001 College Football Hall of Fame inductee, played for the University of Oklahoma from 1984 to 1987, twice earning consensus All-America honors, while also helping the Sooners earn a National Championship in 1985. Buddy Ryan and the Philadelphia Eagles made Jackson the 13 th overall selection in the 1988 NFL Draft and did not disappoint, being selected to the Pro Bowl in each of his first three seasons in Philly. Jackson joined the Miami Dolphins on September 29, 1992, ending an extended holdout from the Eagles and becoming a pioneer in the National Football League’s free agency process. The All-Pro tight end wasted little time in becoming one of Dan Marino’s favorite targets, as well as a fan favorite, hauling in a 24-yard touchdown pass against the Buffalo Bills just five days after he signed with Miami. In his three seasons with the Dolphins, Jackson tallied 146 receptions for 1,880 yards and 18 TDs and was selected to the Pro Bowl twice. During his visit in The Fish Tank, Jackson fondly reflects on his tenure in Miami, particularly his appreciation for Marino, while also discussing the challenges he faced with the Dolphins’ weekly weigh-ins, his efforts to help a young McDuffie manage his own expectations, and shares a poignant homage to the late, great Don Shula.
