The Colonial Column: Doug Flutie to Visit Hartford

Doug Flutie will be in camp with the Hartford Colonials on Friday, September 3,  from 3pm to 5pm at Sage Park in Berlin, in preparation for his role as a United Football League (UFL) analyst for Versus.  Flutie, whose professional career began with the New Jersey Generals of the United States Football League (USFL), provides a unique perspective over the upstart UFL. 

Although he is retired from professional football, Flutie’s trademark competitiveness has not faded :

“You want to grab a ball and start slinging,” Flutie admitted after his first visit to a UFL camp this summer when he scouted the Florida Tuskers on August 25. “You miss that competitiveness. Being around these guys, I understand what they’re going through in camp.”

A Heisman Trophy and Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award winner at Boston College, Flutie remarkably enjoyed a 22-year professional career.  He played for the aforementioned New Jersey Generals, the Chicago Bears and New England Patriots, before moving to the Canadian Football League (CFL).  In the CFL, Flutie led the Toronto Argonauts to back-to-back Grey Cup victories and was named CFL Most Outstanding Player a record six times.  He earned MVP honors in all of his three Grey Cup victories.  After his success in Canada, Flutie returned to the NFL, playing for the Buffalo Bills and San Diego Chargers before returning to the Patriots to finish his career.

  5. I have always been a fan of Doug Flutie, from his days with the Toronto Argos. I always found his play selection creative. Hopefully he can bring his experience to his new role as a commenter as well.
