Sports Motivational Speaker for hire Jesse Palmer is a former college and professional football player who now serves as a lead college football analyst for ESPN and ABC as well as a special correspondent for ABC’s Good Morning America. He was a standout quarterback in the SEC for the University of Florida before spending 5 seasons in the NFL.

Jesse played under legendary head coach Steve Spurrier at Florida from 1997-2000 where the team won the SEC Championship in his senior season. During the end of the season in 2000, Jesse received the Fergie Ferguson Award from the university. The award is annually given to the senior football player who displays outstanding character, leadership, and courage. He graduated from Florida with 2 degrees in liberal arts and marketing that built a strong foundation for his future after he retired from the game of football.

Jesse spent his first 4 seasons in the NFL with the New York Giants. His final season of professional football in 2006 came with the San Francisco 49ers and the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League (CFL). Jesse left the game in 2007 to pursue a career in sports broadcasting. He had called several NFL games with Fox from 2005-2007 and also appeared as an analyst on NFL Network on draft night of the 2007 NFL Draft. That same year, he would sign on to join the team of talented college football analysts at ESPN.

Jesse now appears as a studio analyst on ESPN and ABC college football broadcasts and co-hosting his own show on ESPNU called The Palmer & Pollack Show with fellow ESPN college football analyst David Pollack. He is also a lead commentator on the SEC Network with Brent Musburger. Away from the football field, many may recognize Jesse as the eligible bachelor on the fifth season of ABC’s The Bachelor.
