Coffee with Cool People: Ben Utecht

Steve sat down to enjoy a cup of joe with former Minnesota Gophers tight end and Super Bowl champion Ben Utecht.  It’s easy to look at Utecht’s career and automatically think of success, but in his conversation with Steve, he tells the story of how his NFL dreams turned into a nightmare.  But then, suddenly, his dream came true thanks to one very fortunate phone call, made by a Hall of Famer who was determined to act on a promise he had made.  Utecht, now retired, stays busy raising four daughters.  He and Steve bonded over their rare but shared approach to their daughters eventually dating.  So pour yourself a cup of coffee and listen in on the conversation.
