Listen: Football, Jake Plumber And Broncos discussed on Lewis and Logan
"Guy in. I I've been a big fan of Jake plumber is going back to his days at Zona state. I was also very excited when the Denver Broncos signed him as a free agent and excited. The Jake plumber is going into the college football hall of fame pretty cool deal, really cool. And we talked to Jacob op that and he was surprised and excited. Hey, thank you on. I'm doing pretty well. It's a big day and an honor to be adopted into a very select college hall of fame. I didn't understand it. Go it happened. And now looking at it a month before I'm humble, the very honored to represent Arizona state. That's pretty awesome. Hey, jake. How did you find out about what what were you doing? When you when you found out your end, we you know, they they notified me little prior to today. So I I already knew and I got a box in the mail, and sometimes boxes don't get opened immediately. When I get him the kids sometimes make sure if I if they're rounded it gets off right away. Right. I did actually open this. When this when I got it, and I opened the package speaking it was something from somebody during the holidays, and there was a football. It said congratulations on getting inducted into the hall of fame and kind of little better shut, Sharon, you know, how how small back classes, and what an honor it is. And yeah. So I was really surprised and teared up and hug, my family and. All my mom. Dolder? So that's kind of how it went down quite an honor, Jake, the sun devils have had a lot of great players in their football history. Are there any other sun devils in the college football hall of fame? Yeah. There are and I know most recently just a few years ago that Dilma went in with with win big Al win. It actually big alpha Williams. Danny wide. I know is in and then I'd have to go look, I haven't actually had a chance to I wanna go look and see it'd be fun. Find out. I'm sure we never some great players that came out of ASU long years and lights go back and see who who else is in there because I said, it's it's pretty small class. You look at the number of college players and just put into perspective where I'm at my life a little bit along with you know, the great guys I was able to to go play ball with down there. And then the staff that recruited me on a state Bruce Snyder and Bobby between organic and some really great coaches that you believed in this skinny kid out of Boise, Idaho. And told me we win a national title. I came down there, and you know, we damn near dead, and it's all culminated in what what really is a big honor to be in the college football hall. Same a former ASU coach is also going in with you coach Dennis Erickson who coached Zona state among other places in college football and professional football. So he'll be there. Yeah. It's awesome. I know I know coach Eriksson, and that's pretty cool. He's going in because you know, he's very well deserving. And he has the Idaho roots. You know, it it makes a kid from Idaho myself back in the early nineties when they were turning out a lot of D one prospects. Makes me pretty proud to be going in alongside him belong. Some other great great football players and. Are you said I was I was real surprised that I got in and have to think Mark brand. The sports information director at ASU for nominating me. And then continuing to plead his case that I was worthy and up people believed. And again, it's a reflection of that team. I was on a lot of great football players on that team. And a lot of great things. And so I feel like I'm just representation of all those guys because I couldn't have done it without him. There's a lot of guys who play college football Jake in. There aren't many guys who who get inducted into the college football hall of fame. So it's such a cool honor. Hey, let let me switch gears before we have to say salon to you and ask you because I know you you you played here in Denver. I know you follow the game closely and you follow the Broncos in particular. They're in a tad bit of a mess, at least I think so now trying to figure out who's going to be the next head coach and sort of what the offense will look like is you look at the Broncos as presently constituted. What are the two most important things in your mind with respect to getting this team back into the playoffs? The soonest as possible. That's a tough question. I know that you know, the staff that was there. I thought was was very capable surprise to just kind of see how I think offense. I know. I know how goes on some teams when you have a defense caliber that the Broncos have had for the last how many years five six years when they they're gonna have you in every single ball game. 'cause they they are that good, and they can turn it up, and they can go actually almost like create turnovers. So as an offense when you have a defense like that, you're constantly told, you know, don't make any errors. Don't don't shoot us in the foot. Don't don't put the defense in a bad spot me if I was the coach of this team and this offense I was coach him completely opposite. 'cause when you've got a defense like that, you can take those risks, and you can get aggressive, and you can't push the ball down the field. Because if you make a mistake you've got backup, right? They're going to say go ahead case go do your saying if you pick we got your back. And that's what you need. So I don't think they're far off. I just think that that mentality of of you don't hurt us more than hey, we're paying you a lot of money case keenum and these guys to go make plays go make place when it comes down to on. Other teams are making Jake plumber with Jake last time we spoke a couple of years ago. I think and I asked you if you missed the game. And and you said something like man when I watch a game. Now, I can't believe I ever played in the NFL. I guess that happens over time. Do you do you still feel that way? Every second. I see that game. I I look at myself in the mirror and go holy smoke. How did I lived through all that? It's a crazy game. Not only physically but also mentally. I'm very thankful that I played the game. It taught me a lot about myself and gave me the confidence. Now to no matter. What challenges I face? No. That man I was top of my game in the world. So I can say most anything day to day. So again, always Florida amazed that I will put put my potty and everything through that for so many years, but again thankful for it. And yeah, you know, now, you know, things like this the college hall of fame just just reinforce it. It was all worth it all the sacrifice all the hard work. And and, you know, the tears and the, sweat and blood sprains, and strains, and you know, it's definitely an honor. And it me, you know, big smile my face the to. No, I I call for stat and thankful for my family and all my friends. Everybody that made it possible hijack. We've got him a sixty seconds. But I would be remiss if I didn't ask I think I have an idea, but for Broncos fans out there that might not know what keeps you busy these days. What are you doing? You know, I'm I'm raising my kids, and then also trying to build a digital playbook called ready list sports, and it's coming along ways with the another local kid Chad freehoff Colorado school mines great player. They're out of Colorado school mine. We're we're we're slowly inching away. And and almost close to having a really amazing product. We do have a product for flag football outright. Now. Go to ready list, you dot com or regular sports and check it out. So that's really what occupies my time and other than that match stay healthy and happy and and enjoy my family the Mets, Jake plumber.
