Football is similar to the game of life. From star quarterback to now quarterbacking a business strategy, Drew Weatherford continues to lead a quality life. WCTV caught up with him earlier this week to see how the former Land o' Lakes star has been passing the time.. His story is this week's Every Team Has a Story.

There are few positions on the FSU football team that are as important as the role of quarterback. What Charlie ward did is still being recognized; what chris rix did is still being somewhat ridiculed. Obviously winning and losing carries a lot of weight in Seminole nation. But what happens after they leave fsu? Where are former studs like Drew Weatherford? A lot of wins for FSU in his career but does his current career still involve football? Simply put, no.

"I'm done with football... I tried in arena football last year but I think it's time to join the real world. I'm done with football," said Former FSU starting quarterback Drew Weatherford.

After coming to grips with a football reality, Drew Weatherford is now completing passes in the business world and also spending time with the Weatherford team.

"My 5 brothers & my sisters... An aunt, a brother in beijing... I'm here with a whole slew of Weatherfords," Weatherford added.

That doesn't include older brother and state representative Will Weatherford.

"Drew is loved here. He did a lot of good things at FSU. I was a fan, but I also liked Drew as a person too," said Florida Speaker of the House, Rep. (R) Will Weatherford.

So Drew Weatherford has moved on. His successor Christian ponder hopes to move on to the NFL, and now his successor EJ Manuel seems more than ready to help the Seminoles move on to a great spring football season.

"EJ (Manuel) is a great leader and the players like him because he holds himself to a high standard," said FSU Head Football Coach Jimbo Fisher.
