Super Bowl Bound Broncos' Linebacker Shaq Barrett Credits Wrestling

What's that, another football player giving the world's oldest sport some credit for his success on the gridiron? Yup. That's right. This time it's Super Bowl bound Broncos Linebacker Shaq Barrett who talked about his days as a 215-pound state champ from Baltimore, Maryland. In an interview with Vic Lombardi of CBS Denver back in October, Barrett discusses his high school days on the mat.


There have been so many NFL and NCAA football players that have given a ton of credit to our sport for making them the athletes they are between the lines. A while back we had Florida State Linebacker Reggie Northrup and now Barrett saying how much wrestling has helped them on the field.
