Ray Bentley

Ray Bentley is in his 12th season as an ESPN/ABC College Football game analyst. The former

NFL linebacker played 10 years of pro football from 1983 to 1992 after a standout career at

Central Michigan University and Hudsonville High School. Bentley began his pro career with

the Michigan Panthers of the USFL in 1983 winning the Inaugural Championship Game. After

the USFL folded in 1985, Bentley began his 7-year stint in the NFL with the Buffalo Bills from

1986-1992 including Super Bowl XXV and XXVI. Bentley has also been a local radio show

host in Grand Rapids, MI for 10 years. He is the former head coach and general manager of

the Buffalo Destroyers of the Arena Football League. At Central Michigan University he

majored in English Literature and later went on to write and publish seven children’s books.

Bentley now resides in New Hampshire with his wife, Jodi.


Old number 57, Jack Driftwood, is in his final season as a professional linebacker for the Buffalo

Blizzard in the North American Football Association (NAFA). He meets the Blizzard’s owner’s

daughter, Gerry Wainscott and the sparks fly! The team's GM, Donald Fegel, however has his

own plans for the lovely Ms. Wainscott and the battle lines are drawn. Though these titans clash

off the field, they both have only one goal for the 2015 NAFA season: A Mega Bowl

Championship. But will Jack even make it through the season? Not if Fegel has his way. The

action builds and heats up to a chilling race to the finish for both the Blizzard on the field and

this dramatic love triangle off the field!
