More info from the website:
Jason Peter was a University of Nebraska football defensive lineman in the mid-nineties where he played on three national Championship teams (1994, 1995 & 1997). He was named First Team All-Big 12 in 1996 and 1997, First Team All American in 1997 and was also a finalist for the Outland Trophy, the Bronko Nagurski and the Defensive Player of the Year Award. Jason was selected by the NFL as a first-round draft pick by the Carolina Panthers where he played for five years before injuries forced him to retire. Jason’s memoir is a New York Times bestseller titled “Hero of the Underground”. Jason is currently co-hosting Omaha’s CBC Action 3 News “Sports Sound Off” live.
