A wide ranging and highly inspiring conversation with Hall of Fame football legend Larry Csonka on his entertaining new book, Head On. We talk about his glory days with my beloved Miami Dolphins, their 17-0 perfect season, the great coach Don Shula and the magic of those special teams. We also talk about Larry’s long-time love of nature and especially Alaska where he was once touched by the Northern Lights. He even shares about his near death experience out at sea in a raging storm.
From quitting football at a young age, to his often-combative relationship with Coach Don Shula, to brazen exploits with his NFL pals, he narrates a life that is colorful, unbridled, and thrilling.
Larry Csonka is a former professional American football fullback and Super Bowl MVP who played for the Miami Dolphins, and briefly with the New York Giants. The Hall of Famer and two-time Super Bowl Champion is a member of the 1972 Miami Dolphins, whose undefeated 17-0 season catapulted the team into the NFL history books. He and life partner Audrey Bradshaw divide their time between Florida and North Carolina, with occasional visits to their Ohio farm and the Alaska wilderness.
