THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
WITH JASON ROMANO, FEATURING DAVID KLINGLER
David Klingler played seven seasons in the NFL with the Cincinnati Bengals, Oakland Raiders and Green Bay Packers. He was selected sixth overall in the 1992 NFL Draft by the Bengals, after a stellar college career at the University of Houston that saw him set multiple records and finish as a Heisman finalist in 1990.
Among the records Klingler set at Houston is throwing for 11 touchdown passes in one game on Nov. 17, 1990, against Eastern Washington. In December 1990, he set the NCAA Division-I record for most yards gained a single game with 716 (since surpassed in 2014).
After his playing career, Klingler obtained his Masters in Theology in 2004, and a PhD in Old Testament Studies in 2010 from Dallas Theological Seminary, where is currently an associate professor of Bible exposition.
Today on the podcast, we talk to Klingler about his incredible college football career, getting drafted sixth overall in 1992 by the Bengals, and his desire to teach people how to read and understand God’s Word.
Growing up in Houston, I loved watching David Klingler play. I was so disappointed he didn’t win the Heisman. Later in my life, I took a class from him at Dallas Seminary & it radically changed how I looked at Scripture. I’m so grateful for his influence! https://t.co/ronzDm0dfx
