It was revealed on “Good Morning America” earlier this month that Flutie would be partnered with Karina Smirnoff for Season 22, and the general consensus is that it’s pretty exciting to have yet another athlete on the show. In addition to that, this year is the first time that three NFL players in the lineup, as Flutie will be joined by Von Miller and Antonio Brown. After the two hour premiere that was broadcasted this Monday, it’s clear that this is going to be a fun season and will give the athletes something to compete for on the dance floor.
The Manchester, Maryland native started playing football after his family moved to Florida and he got enrolled at Hoover Junior High School. He helped take his team to two Brevard County Championships, by the time he graduated high school he was an All-League performer in three sports: basketball, football, and baseball. Flutie attended Boston College and played football there from 1981 through 1984, and during his senior year he was even awarded the Heisman Trophy for that year. Due to his great collegiate success in sports, he immediately took a deal and signed with the USFL months before the annual NFL Draft, which because of this he was selected in the 1tth round by the Los Angeles Rams. By the time he retired in 2005, Flutie had played for the Chicago Bears, New England Patriots, Buffalo Bills, San Diego Chargers, and for two teams in the CFL.
