Tale of Three Quarterbacks: Doug Johnson, Peyton Manning and Danny Wuerffel

Tale of Three Quarterbacks     Broadcast on WUFT-FM in the Summer of 1997

When the college football season opened in the Fall of 1997, two quarterbacks from SEC football teams had big dreams.  Tennessee’s “golden boy” Peyton Manning and the University of Florida’s Doug Johnson had big shoes to fill and goals to accomplish….all in the shadow of one of the most decorated and accomplished college football players, Danny Wuerffel.  Wuerffel had moved on to the NFL after winning not only the Heisman Trophy, but also an SEC Championship and the College Football National Championship.  Donna Green-Townsend has this tale of three quarterbacks.
