scout! At 21, I was working as an insurance agent when suddenly a commercial came on the local sports radio station, KFAN Radio in Minnesota. That's the state I grew up in. The commercial said the first thirty-two callers could call in and get on the radio to participate in the Vikings special mock draft party before the NFL Draft that year.

More ideas came to mind, how I could stop at the store on the way home from work and get notebooks, folders and pens. Next thing I knew, I was working at the bank by day and moonlighting as an aspiring scout by night. One night while watching college games and writing scouting reports, I took a break at 2 a.m. to heat up some pizza rolls. The channel just happened to be tuned to ESPN and I found myself watching this show about Wayne Chrebet, an undrafted
