Guest Blog: Sam Madison (Dolphins CB 1997-2005, 4x Pro Bowl selection)
November 30, 1997: Miami at Oakland
At this point of my rookie season I had recovered from my injury and was playing well on special teams. Playing against one of the best WRs in the NFL in Tim Brown, I got beat for a TD early in the game.
Everyone knows that some of the best high school and college football in the nation is played right here in the state of Florida and over the years, many of the stars from those universities have gone on to play for the Dolphins. Whether it’s current Fins Brandon Marshall (UCF), Vernon Carey (Miami), or Channing Crowder (Florida); or some of the heroes of the past like Larry Little (Bethune-Cookman), Trace Armstrong (Florida), Terrell Buckley (FSU), and Woody Bennett (Miami), the in-state schools have always helped to stock the roster.
