If there is one thing the Huard family knows, it’s quarterback play! Born in Yakima, Washington and raised in Puyallup, Damon Huard was one of three brothers (Brock and Luke) who played Division I college football, with both Damon and Brock also enjoying NFL careers. Although he finished college as the Washington Huskies’ all-time passing leader, Huard went undrafted in 1996, eventually signing with the Cincinnati Bengals as an undrafted free agent. Huard was waived in training camp and spent the entire year out of football before Jimmy Johnson brought him to South Florida and his professional football journey would truly begin.
In The Tank, Damon explains what it was like to have played with both Dan Marino and Tom Brady, provides the amazing details surrounding his “coming out party” after replacing Marino mid-game in a thrilling come-from-behind victory against the New England Patriots, reveals the real story behind Olindo Mare’s 1999 Pro Bowl season, and discusses the quarterback competition with Jay Fiedler prior to 2000.
