Trent Dilfer is a former NFL Quarterback and current NFL analyst for ESPN.  Dilfer’s reputation is predicated on his intense work ethic and positive attitude that allowed him to overcome some of his physical shortcomings as a quarterback.  A native of Santa Cruz, California, Dilfer remained in-state for his college education at Fresno State University.  Sports Speaker Trent was drafted 6th overall in the 1995 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  Dilfer’s career began with a rocky start in his first couple of years, but by 1997 he stabilized his play and was named to the Pro Bowl.  This was the first time that a Buccaneers quarterback had earned the selection.

After the 1999 season, Dilfer moved on from Tampa Bay and signed a contract to be the backup quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens.  Dilfer took over the starting job for the second half of the season and led the Ravens on a 7-1 to the playoffs.  The hot streak continued for Dilfer and the Ravens, as they would go on to win Super Bowl XXXV against the New York Giants.  This ended up being Dilfer’s final game with the Ravens.  Dilfer would go on to play for 6 more seasons with the Seattle Seahawks, Cleveland Browns, and San Francisco 49ers before retiring in 2007.  Although Trent was never able to gain another full-time starting role, he played a valuable role as a mentor and back-up to the other quarterbacks on the rosters.

In 2008 Dilfer was hired by ESPN to become an NFL analyst for the network.  Trent is a part of much of ESPN’s NFL programming including appearances on SportsCenter and Monday Night Countdown.  His analysis is often filled with enthusiasm and catch phrases that Dilfer uses frequently.  Trent is married with 3 daughters, and still mourns the loss of his son Trevin who died of heart disease at age 5.
