What can you tell me about Cris Collinsworth of NBC's Sunday Night Football?

The former NFL wide receiver played at Astronaut High School in Titusville, Fla., as an All-American quarterback. He competed in college for the University of Florida, where he threw the longest touchdown pass in NCAA history (99 yards), a record that has since been tied.

His NFL career was spent with the Cincinnati Bengals. After that he became a sports radio host in Cincinnati, which was followed by a job as a reporter for HBO's Inside the NFL, from which he steadily worked his way to his current position as a game analyst.

The married father of four says, "I am 52 years old. And I hope at some point in your life you get to do a job, where, when they put up a little description of your job, you still get goose bumps. I [look] at our schedule and I go, 'I am the luckiest guy on the planet.'"
