Retired NFL quarterback and Valley native David Carr has joined the content team at GV Wire as a featured football columnist.
Carr is an on-air analyst with NFL Network. He played 11 pro seasons following a standout college career at quarterback with the Fresno State Bulldogs from 1997-2001. Carr was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2002 NFL draft.
Each Friday beginning in September, Carr will share his insider perspective with a new column.
“I look forward to discussing local collegiate football and bringing insight during the NFL season,” Carr said. “GV Wire brings in-depth reporting to the Central Valley, and as a native, I am thrilled to collaborate on weekly stories.”
