Born and raised in what some call The First Family of Football in Puyallup, Washington, Brock Huard is the ‘middle quarterback’ of Mike and Peg Huard.After playing for his father, the head football coach, at Puyallup High School and being selected as the 1995 Gatorade Circle of Champions National Player of the Year, Brock followed his older brother Damon’s footsteps, playing quarterback for the University of Washington Huskies. Brock was drafted in 1999 and played six years in the NFL, four of which with the Seattle Seahawks.
These days, most know Huard as co-host of KIRO radio’s 710 ESPN morning sports talk show – Brock and Salk – and his 10 years as an ESPN color commentator for college football.
Becoming a Christ-follower in junior high and receiving profound mentoring from his youth pastor, Brock continued a lifelong journey of seeking out and developing authentic and transforming friendships with Christian brothers and mentors, both on and off the field.
In April of 2017, Brock debuted his new podcast Above and Beyond – The Intersection of Faith and Sports, where he features interviews with the men that have impacted and continue to inspire his Christian faith.
“I am thrilled to get to share my life and faith in a way I never have before, through the medium of podcasts, and even more so through relationships that have shaped my journey,” Huard said. “Through my years as an athlete, in real estate, and now in the media world, I have always thirsted for deep rooted relationships. These podcasts will dig into those encounters with athletes like you’ve never heard before.”
Above and Beyond is sponsored by Compassion International, a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to the long-term development of children living in poverty around the world. Brock’s goal for Above and Beyond is to be the inspiration for the sponsorship of at least 1000 children by the end of 2017.
Brock and his wife, Molly, have been married for 18 years and have two daughters, Haley and Macey, and a son, Titus.
