Biography

Doug Flutie's name has been synonymous with excellence in both college and professional football, as he has received many honors including: All American at Boston College, 1984 College Football Player of the Year, the 1984 Heisman Trophy Winner, 1991-1994/1996/1997 Grey Cup Most Valuable Player, NFL Pro Bowl, and NFL Comeback Player of the Year.

Known for the famous “Hail Mary” pass against University of Miami to win the Orange Bowl in college, Doug went on to play in the USFL and then the Chicago Bears and New England Patriots through the late 80’s. He then played in the Canadian Football League for 8 years, where he was a marquee attraction, being named the league's Most Outstanding Player an unprecedented six times and won numerous Grey Cup Championships.

Doug Flutie went on to sign with the National Football League's Buffalo Bills in 1998 where he was selected to the NFL Pro Bowl, carried the Bills to the Playoffs and was honored as “NFL Comeback Player of the Year.” At the age of 38, he signed a contract with the San Diego Chargers to become their starting quarterback. After 4 seasons with the Chargers, Doug was offered the opportunity to finish his career with his hometown team, the New England Patriots. Doug played one season with the Patriots before he retired, but in true Flutie fashion, he went out with a bang. On New Year's Day 2006, Doug completed the NFL's first "drop kick" for an extra point in 64 years! A fitting end to a long, storied career.

Mr. Flutie has been a spokesperson for a variety of companies, including State Farm, Capital One, Eastern Bank, Dove, Coca Cola, and Reebok. Post football, Doug has been a color analyst and in-studio broadcast analyst for ABC and ESPN College Football and on Versus with the United Football League. He currently is the sideline reporter for NBC Sports’ Notre Dame games and on Pro Football Talk.

Doug Flutie has a charismatic personality whose approachable and personable style has translated his success on the football field into success off the field. He graduated from Boston College with degrees in Communications and Computer Science. Doug is the drummer of the Flutie Brothers Band. He has also written an autobiography, entitled “Flutie”, recounting his life both on and off the field. Married to his high-school sweetheart, Laurie Flutie, and the father of two children, Doug and his wife established, the "Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism" in 1998 in the name of their son Dougie, Jr. to help less-fortunate families who have children with autism. He also created a cereal, Flutie Flakes, with the benefits going towards this organization. The Flutie Foundation has raised over $18 million dollars for autism causes.
