Damon Huard and his family are regarded as "football royalty" in Western Washington. His father Mike was a longtime football coach at Puyallup High School, and both Damon and his brother Brock were standout quarterbacks at the University of Washington. Damon went on to a solid NFL career, spending quality time with teams like the Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, and Kansas City Chiefs, and even brought home two Super Bowl rings.
Now, he's launching a new venture, teaming up with former Miami teammate and longtime friend, NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino (@DanMarino) and several others. They're jumping into the wine business, harnessing the incredible flavor of Washington grapes, and bringing to life a dream that began as a chat fifteen years ago.
Dan and Damon stopped by the show today to sit down with host Margaret Larson and talk about their new project, Passing Time Winery.
Dan also has created a nonprofit, The Dan Marino Foundation, which is dedicated to helping kids and families living with Autism and other special needs. He and his wife Claire launched the foundation in 1992 after their then three year old son Michael was diagnosed with Autism.
