Caleb, Jaylen, & Drake: The 2024 NFL Draft

No professionial sports league 'sells itself' better than the NFL. For a number of years now, they've managed to keep their league and brand in the news 365 days a year and the NFL Draft has become 'must see' tv. As well, by moving it from city to city the last few years, it has become a huge local event for the place that hosts it. This year, over 295 000 fans attended Night 1 of the draft! That almost increased the size of the city of Detroit by 50%! The draft used to be 17 rounds. Then, it was reduced to 12, and for the past number of years, it has gone down to 7, but shrinking the number of rounds has coincided with its increased popularity. For weeks and even months in advance, there is endless speculation about which teams will draft which players. Well, on April 25th, the 2024 draft began. Two days later, it was over.

Dave Morrissey

Dave is an accomplished economics instructor with over two decades of experience in the prestigious International Baccalaureate program. His students have consistently ranked in the top 10% annually, and one year they achieved the highest overall class average in the world. This outstanding achievement led a UK publisher to request that he write a textbook, an offer he declined in favor of creating sports quizzes, which he found more engaging.

In addition to his teaching career, Dave is also a former high school football coach, having won a couple of local championships. While he wishes he had won more, he continues to be deeply involved in football as a scout, recruiter, and social media creator for a university football team.

Dave's passions extend beyond the classroom and football field. He is an avid fan of live music and international travel, often combining these interests. He has traveled to Spain, England, Iceland, and Chile to see bands perform. His greatest pride and joy is his daughter, who has recently excelled in powerlifting. In just a few years, she has become the Canadian record holder for the bench press in her weight class and finished second overall in the combined national event (bench, deadlift, and squat) in Moose Jaw in March 2024. She will be representing Canada at the World Bench Competition in Austin, Texas, in May 2024.

A die-hard fan of the Las Vegas Raiders, Dave has experienced his share of sports heartache, having seen them play in seven NFL cities with six losses. His all-time favorite athlete is Don Mattingly, reflecting his deep love for sports that spans many arenas.
