Mark Tauscher is comfortable with being a walk-on. He’s been doing it his entire life and now he gets another chance to shine.
The Marshfield, Wisconsin, native took his talents to the University of Wisconsin where he started on two Rose Bowl teams, then was drafted in the seventh round by the Green Bay Packers where he started for more than 10 years before age and injuries finally caught up with him.
Now he’s starting on a new venture having been selected to serve as a studio analyst for one of the league’s United Kingdom television partners. He spent four days at NFL Broadcast Boot Camp training and was chosen as one of two players to work next season as an analyst. The other player chosen was Troy Brown. In all, there were 23 players who were invited to the broadcasting camp program this year, the sixth year the league has offered it. Network broadcasters, executives and producers tutored the players on all aspects of football broadcasting on radio and television.
So, it’s good news for Tauscher and a testament to his intellect and presence. This time he gets to tell people about the game he played so well for so long.
We wish him the best of luck in his new venture.
