The Early Years: When he arrived at Colorado State University, the skateboard wielding transfer quarterback from Michigan State was all the talk and a bit of a mystery. Fans called him “Sunshine” and no one could quite figure out Bradlee Van Pelt. Including Bradlee.

What Bradlee did know is he wanted to play quarterback and he stuck to his plan despite nearly everyone trying to push him to another position and never receiving any proper quarterback coaching. He threw footballs at targets for hours after practice, just waiting for his moment. When that moment came, Bradlee rose to the occasion and fans were calling for Sunshine to be under center. He made it and while the next two years involved some chaos, Bradlee won back to back Mountain West Conference Offensive Player of the Year awards.

Part 1 focuses on BVP’s early life, from growing up the son of an NFL player, the litany of sports he played, figuring out college and some choices he wishes he could have back and do over. Part 2 focuses on 2004 to present day, from the NFL Draft, bouncing around to a few teams, becoming a husband and a father.
