2015 Quicken Loans All-Star Football Challenge – Team Competition


WITH THIS GROUP OF ATHLETES. LET ME SHOW YOU MY TEAM. I’LL TAKE YOU THROUGH THE THOUGHT PROCESS AS TO WHY I PICKED CERTAIN PLAYERS. FIRST OF ALL, JARED ROBERTS, COLORADO STATE. ENOUGH SAID. THEN QUINTEN ROLLINS. I LIKE THE BASKETBALL BACKGROUND. I WANTED TO GO WITH ROLLINS THERE, THE FOUR YEARS AS A POINT GUARD WITH MIAMI OF OHIO BEFORE THIS ONE SENSATIONAL YEAR AS A DEFENSIVE BACK WITH THE REDHAWKS. DANTE FOWLER, OBVIOUSLY HE WAS FANTASTIC IN HIS DISCIPLINE, WINNING IT EARLIER IN THE DAY AND MALCOLM BROWN, THE BIG DEFENSIVE TACKLE FOR TEXAS. I WANTED THE STRENGTH. >>SO THE RULES FOR THE TEAM COMPETITION IS ESSENTIALLY A RELAY. THE KICKER STARTS IT. THEY MUST MAKE THE FIELD GOAL TO ADVANCE. SO GALLOWAY, MACK, MYSELF, A LOT OF CONFIDENCE IN THE KICKER. IN THE QUARTERBACK, TARGET IN THE BASKET NET THROW. DEFENSIVE BACKS GET INVOLVED. THERE’S A TIRE FLIP AND FINALLY THE AGILITY CHUTE AND THE LADDER. FASTEST TEAM WINS IN THE END. WE START WITH TEAM GALLOWAY. JOEY, YOU’RE STARTING WITH SAM FICKEN. >>I FEEL REAL GOOD ABOUT THIS START. SAM FICKEN WON THE FAST KICK COMPETITION. I FEEL REALLY GOOD. HE WILL HIT THIS KICK TO START MY TEAM OFF. >>OF COURSE WE KNOW, AND WE TALKED ABOUT IT EARLIER, HE HIT THE GAME-WINNING KICK FOR PENN STATE IN THE PINSTRIPE BOWL. THEY BEAT BOSTON COLLEGE. AND HE WON THE FAST KICKING COMPETITION AND HE NAILS THE FIRST KICK. >>THERE WE GO. IN THERE.>>BRANDON BRIDGE IS YOUR QUARTERBACK. TRAE WAYNES FROM MICHIGAN STATE IS YOUR DB FROM THE HANDS TEAM. NAVIGATED THAT WELL. >>YOU’RE LOOKING GOOD RIGHT NOW. >>YOU’RE LOOKING REAL GOOD. >>WHO ARE YOU FINISHING UP WITH HERE? OH, VIC BEASLEY. >>HERE WE GO, BIG FELLA. SEE, MY TIME WAS SANDBAGGING. WE WERE WAITING UNTIL THIS COMPETITION. WE LOST A FEW BATTLES BUT THE IDEA WAS TO WIN THE WAR, AND HERE IT IS. >>LA’EL COLLINS, YOUR LINEMAN. >>GET THEM IN THERE, BIG FELLA.>>OH, HE’S MOVING. >>YEAH. I LIKE IT.>>THAT’S A GOOD START. THAT’S GOING TO BE TOUGH TO BEAT, MACK, I DON’T KNOW. YOU GOT A GREAT START FROM FICKEN TOO.>>HE WENT RIGHT THROUGH, THE SUN IN HIS EYE.>>WAYNES GOING THROUGH THE GAUNTLET, NO ISSUE. >>NO FLAG, I LIKE IT. >>NO FLAGS, NO PENALTIES. A LITTLE TAP THERE. BEASLEY DOING THIS IS THING WITH THE TIRE ROLL. AND THEN THE INTERESTING THING TOO, WE TALKED ABOUT COLLINS AND THE QUICK AND NIMBLE FEET FOR A GUY WHO’S 320 POUNDS. LOOK AT THAT. >>THAT’S WHY YOU PICKED HIM RIGHT THERE. >>WATCH THE SCOOP. TWO HANDS AND GET IT TO THE END ZONE. THERE WE GO. >>NO WAIST BENDING EITHER. THAT’S USING THE KNEES RIGHT THERE. BENDING HIS KNEES, SCOOPING IT LIKE A DEFENSIVE LINEMAN. >>TEAM GALLOWAY, 45.97. THE KEY TO THAT, ZERO PENALTIES. 45.97. JOEY’S TEAM PUTS THAT UP ON THE BOARD AS THE TIME TO BEAT. NOW, GREG, YOUR SQUAD IS GOING TO GO. THIS THING GETS STARTED WITH YOUR KICKER, KYLE BRINDZA. >>KYLE BRINDZA, I’VE GOT FAITH IN HIM. HIS LAST KICK IN A NOTRE DAME UNIFORM WAS RIGHT THROUGH THE UPRIGHTS TO BEAT THE LSU TIGERS. HE’S GOING TO GET TEAM McELROY OFF TO A GOOD START RIGHT HERE.>>HE MADE IT!>>IT’S IN THERE. >>THAT WAS CRUCIAL.>>IS THERE A REPLAY?>>CAN WE SEE REPLAY ON THAT? SEAN MANNION IS YOUR QUARTERBACK, INTO THE NET. >>NICE. NICE RIGHT IN THE FACEMASK RIGHT THERE. >>LANDON COLLINS TAKING OVER. HE WON HIS INDIVIDUAL EVENT AND HE’S CARRYING IT OVER HERE. >>SO DID SEAN MANNION. WE’VE GOT A COUPLE WINNERS ON THIS TEAM. WE’VE GOT A COUPLE STUDS. >>AMEER ABDULLAH WAS THE NUMBER ONE OVERALL PICK TOO. >>YEAH, APPEARED THIS IS MADE FOR HIM. LOOK AT HIM DROP. FIRST OF ALL, HE MAKES MOVING AND BENDING LIKE THAT LOOK SO EASY. >>AND ANDRUS PEAT WILL FINISH IT OFF. >>LOOK AT THE FEET RIGHT THERE. THIS IS WHAT I WAS NERVOUS ABOUT. THERE YOU GO, PIECE OF CAKE. IN THERE. NOT QUITE GOOD ENOUGH, BUT I’M PROUD OF THE EFFORT OF THE GUYS.>>GREAT EFFORT. >>I LOVE THE EFFORT. >>YOU’RE IN SECOND PLACE RIGHT NOW. NOT BAD.>>NO PENALTIES AS WELL. THAT WAS CLOSE. REAL CLOSE. >>IF YOU MISS THAT KICK, IT’S PRETTY MUCH OVER. YOU’VE GOT TO COME BACK AND SET IT UP. JUST THE TIMING WON’T BE THERE. >>SEAN MANNION, ANOTHER WINNER TODAY. I MEAN HE THREW A COUPLE GOOD BALLS. MISSED THE FIRST ONE UNDERNEATH. THAT’S ALL RIGHT. THEN LANDON COLLINS. SECOND OVERALL PICK FOR MY TEAM.>>YOU DID A GREAT JOB OF PICKING YOUR TEAM EARLIER IN THE DAY. >>GOOD SELECTION, YEAH. THEY LEFT IT ALL OUT THERE TODAY. AMEER ABDULLAH, LOOK AT THIS. FIRST OF ALL, HE’S 195 POUNDS AND HE JUST FLIPPED THE TIRES THAT THE DEFENSIVE LINEMEN AND THE OFFENSIVE LINEMEN AT TIMES HAD TROUBLE WITH TODAY. >>LOOK AT THOSE GUNS, THOUGH.>>WHAT ARE YOU USING, YOUR BICEPS, RIGHT?>>YOU’VE GOT TO GET THE LOWER BODY IN THAT THING. THE TIRE MIGHT WEIGH JUST AS MUCH AS HE DOES. >>AND HERE’S THE SCORE, AS YOU MENTIONED. MAYBE NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO TOPPLE GALLOWAY AT 45.97. BUT 49.17. SOLID SCORE FOR TEAM McELROY. ALL RIGHT, NOW IT’S TIME TO TAKE HOME THE GOLD. TIME FOR THE “W” HERE. I’VE BEEN COUNTING ON THESE GUYS ALL DAY AND I’M GOING TO START WITH MY GUY RIGHT HERE, JARED ROBERTS, THE WALK-ON FROM DENVER’S MULLEN HIGH SCHOOL.>>UH-OH. >>OH, IT CAME BACK IN. >>NICE. >>NOW IT’S CARDEN.>>OH, TWO THROWS AT THE TARGET.>>IT’S REAL IMPORTANT FOR THE QUARTERBACK HERE NOT TO GUIDE IT. THAT’S ONLY TEN YARDS AWAY. >>ALL RIGHT, HE GOT IT. >>THE REASON WHY I PICKED THIS YOUNG MAN RIGHT HERE, QUINTEN ROLLINS, A BASKETBALL PLAYER. I KNEW HE HAD THE FEET AND THE HANDS, THE AGILITY. DANTE FOWLER — >>BOY, YOU CAN HEAR FOWLER GETTING UNDER THAT TIRE. HE’S SERIOUS ABOUT IT. HE WANTS TO WIN ONE. >>PRETTY IMPRESSIVE PERFORMANCE BY HIM ON THE OBSTACLE COURSE EARLIER. >>HE WON THE COURSE EARLIER. >>OH, THAT’S A LITTLE EARLY. WE NEED A REPLAY OUT HERE. >>NO, WE DON’T AT ALL. >>I THINK HE’S GOT IT. >>NICE, NICE, NICE. MALCOLM BROWN FINISHING IT UP. THOSE WERE THREE REALLY CLEAN RUNS. >>NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. >>REALLY CLEAN RUNS. >>IMPRESSIVE. >>I’M PROUD OF THE EFFORT, YOU KNOW. THIS IS RIGHT HERE WHERE ROBERTS COULD HAVE — YOU KNOW, GIVE IT UP RIGHT AWAY.>>THE KEY, I LET YOU GUYS WIN EARLIER. MY TEAM WAS SANDBAGGING. WE WERE SAVING UP FOR THIS COMPETITION RIGHT HERE.>>YOU SEE WHAT I LIKED ABOUT MY TEAM TOO IS THEY WERE DOWN A LITTLE EARLY, THEY WERE BEHIND, BUT THEY DIDN’T GIVE UP. FOWLER HAD JUST RUN THE OBSTACLE COURSE. HE’S BACK AT IT AGAIN. THE TAZMANIAN DEVIL. ALL THREE TEAMS PRETTY WELL ROUNDED, WELL DRAFTED. I’VE GOT TO GIVE MY FELLOW GMs CREDIT HERE. >>I’M PROUD OF THIS GUY. THIS IS THE HEAVIEST GUY IN THE ENTIRE COMPETITION. YOU SEE HIM GOING THROUGH THAT COURSE, PICKING UP THE FOOTBALL AND FINISHING IT. >>HIGH AND TIGHT TOO WITH THE FOOTBALL. I LIKE THAT. >>THAT’S A DEFENSIVE TACKLE THAT KNOWS HOW TO SCORE POINTS RIGHT THERE. >>THERE’S NO DOUBT.>>SO COULDN’T QUITE BREAK 50. AND I DID FINISH IN THIRD PLACE, BUT I’VE GOT TO SAY I’M PROUD OF MY CLUB FOR THE WAY THEY OPERATED. FANTASTIC PERFORMANCE. I GUESS WE HAVE A WINNER. IT’S VERY FORTUNATE BECAUSE GALLOWAY IS GOING TO GLOAT OVER THIS — >>WHO, ME? DO YOU THINK I’M GOING TO GLOAT?>>JUST ABOUT EVERY SINGLE DAY I’VE GOT TO DEAL WITH IT. KAYLEE HARTUNG IS STANDING BY WITH THE WINNERS. >>TEAM GALLOWAY HAVING A LITTLE CELEBRATION OVER HERE. WHO IS MVP OF TEAM GALLOWAY? NOT LANDON COLLINS. >>FIRST OF ALL, I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE ALL THE CREDIT. I DID EVERYTHING. ACTUALLY I’LL GIVE THE CREDIT TO THESE MEN. GREAT PASSES. VERY EFFICIENT ON EVERYTHING THAT WE DID. WE DIDN’T BACK TRACK. WE DIDN’T HAVE TO REDO THINGS SO WE REALLY CAME OUT HERE, GOT AFTER IT. I’M THE HEAD COACH, SO YEAH.>>NO CREDIT TO JOEY GALLOWAY FOR DRAFTING THIS TEAM. YOU GUIDES STARTED THIS OFF PENALTY-FREE, MADE IT LOOK, DO YOU THINK A LITTLE TOO EASY FOR ALL THE OTHER GUYS?>>MOST DEFINITELY. WE CAME IN ABOUT TO DOMINATE. WE HAD THAT LITTLE THING. I MEAN WE HAD A COUPLE OF PEOPLE FROM THE BIG 12, S.E.C., FORGET ABOUT THEM. WE’RE ABOUT TO COME IN HERE, DOMINATE. YOU KNOW SAM STARTED OFF RIGHT BY KICKING IT NICE. OH, MY BAD, I FORGOT ABOUT COLLINS. BUT LIKE THE HEAD COACH — YEAH, WE CAME OUT HERE, HAD A GOOD TIME AND PEOPLE DID THEIR JOBS. >>TRAE, THE GUY WHO LETS HIS PLAY TALK FOR HIM, WHAT DO YOU WANT TO SAY AFTER THIS ONE?>>SPEED. >>SPEED. JOEY GALLOWAY, SPEED.>>SPEED, SPEED AND MORE SPEED. SPEED IS MY MIDDLE NAME.
