If Tom Luginbill has proven one thing in his lifetime it’s that he is not afraid to try new things.
He moved around a lot as a college football player. He transferred to Georgia Tech as a junior college quarterback in 1994 only to leave a year later and conclude his career at Eastern Kentucky. He also got around as professional football player and coach. He played and coached for six different teams in four different leagues — none of them the NFL — over eight seasons.
Now 35, Luginbill feels like he has finally found his niche. Today he is national recruiting director for ESPN.com.

Hallford Stadium in Clarkston to cover the M.L. King-Stephenson game.
Luginbill started working for ESPN five years ago as an NFL scouting expert five years
