Drew Stanton’s Detroit Lions did not make it to Sunday’s Super Bowl, despite a valiant resurgence by the team this season. Even if they had, Stanton himself would likely not be taking a single snap. He is a valued leader in the locker room nonetheless, and his leadership extends to his off-the-field activities, making the backup quarterback a consistently high performer in his community.
Zac Snyder got hooked on the Lions after his dad took him to a Monday Night Football game against the Los Angeles Raiders in 1990. The show put on by Barry Sanders and Bo Jackson that night was only surpassed by what Zac could do with Barry in a game of Tecmo Super Bowl.
