Ah the good old days.

Back in 2008, a young Joe Flacco smoked the competition in ESPN’s College Football All-Star Challenge. Flacco won the Long Distance Throw with a 74 yard bomb, beating Matt Ryan (that’s funny), Colt Brennan, Chad Henne and John David Booty. He also took home the Quarterback Scramble crown with a time of 15.72 seconds.

There are so many things to love about this video:

A. Flacco’s comparison to Ben Roethlisberger.

2. The awkward interviews that reveal that Flacco’s personality was exactly the same when he was a kid out of Delaware.

D. Flacco saying he’ll give the TV’s to his younger brothers.

The young Flacco would later be drafted 18th overall by the Ravens, win the Super Bowl XLVII MVP and sign a pretty $120.6 million contract.

  1. It doesn’t matter. Flacco, had the worst season ever & still can’t run a offense smoothly. Yet, we are sitting back watching the playoffs, eating his 120mill contract.

  2. How’d he do in the accuracy challenge? I know he didn’t win that.
