  • Gardner Minshew Smashed Own Hand with Hammer to Keep College Eligibility

His everyman appearance, laid-back demeanor and penchant for, uh, almost nude calisthenics have endeared him to fans across the country.

He added to that status Friday morning, when he told a bonkers story during the Pardon My Take podcast about the extremes he once went to so he could continue his college football career.

The Jacksonville Jaguars QB said it all went down in 2016 during his first year at East Carolina University. where he was the 3rd string QB and planned on redshirting the season.

"I played about a half and then we get in for the next week and the starter is going to be back", Minshew said. So shoot, I'm standing there and I go in and play about a half. He expected, with two seniors above him in the pecking order, that he wouldn't play at all that season, allowing him to redshirt and play three full seasons after the guys ahead of him graduated. So I'm like, 'Dang man, I just played a half and really wasted a year on playing a half of ball.' So I was pretty pissed so I started looking around at what I could do and what my options were. The only thing I could do was to get a medical redshirt. And, I go back into my room, I take a pull of the Jack Daniels, I put my hand down on the table and BOOM! "I mean, I know it sounds odd but after you know Gardner for not too long of a period of time, that really doesn't surprise you that much". I go home, I grabbed a bottle of Jack Daniels, and I grab a hammer. Still nothing at this point and knew it wasn't broken. I knew it wasn't broken, so one more time, another pull, another three hits and that was all I could take. That was all I could take.

"I couldn't break my own hand!" The hand remained swollen for several weeks.

As it turned out, it was a good thing he didn't break it. Minshew ended up acquiring the starting job.

"Here's a story, the only group of people I've ever told is the Washington State football team before this past year and it was just about, 'What would you do to play more football?'" Minshew told the Pardon My Take podcast. "I'd do damn near anything", he told them.
