2017 Football Preview: Matt Ryan, Ron Rivera, Christian Wilkins and Rory Coleman

Quarterback Matt Ryan, Coach Ron Rivera, Clemson DL Christian Wilkins and Central Florida OL Rory Coleman.

Matt Ryan discusses how his time at Boston College proved a springboard for his NFL success and how the Falcons are looking to bounce back from a heart breaking Super Bowl defeat. Panthers Head Coach Ron Rivera talks about the infamous Cal-Stanford Band game, playing on the Super Bowl winning Monsters of the Midway team, the feelings when his house caught on fire and the emotion of losing his brother. Christian Wilkins may be menacing between the lines, but he is the life of the party away from the gridiron. Rory Coleman is a former United States Army Combat Medic who was injured in battle and earned a Purple Heart and Army Commendation Medal with Valor. Rory talks about his experience in battle and the reason why he returned to college to play D-1 football.
