In this episode of “This Is Purdue,” we’re talking to former Purdue football quarterback Curtis Painter.
After Curtis’ time at Purdue, he stayed right here at home in Indiana, playing three seasons for the Indianapolis Colts before the Baltimore Ravens signed him, then closing out his professional career with the New York Giants.
Listen in as host Kate Young talks with Curtis about his time at Purdue. He reflects on highlights including a 62-10 blowout against Indiana University in the final game of Joe Tiller’s storied career, as well as breaking Drew Brees’ 1998 record for passing yards in a single season. Curtis also shares some of the biggest moments from his NFL career, including how he felt playing alongside football greats Eli and Peyton Manning.
Curtis takes us behind the scenes, from running onto the field at Ross-Ade for the first time in front of 60,000 fans and what it meant to play for the legendary Joe Tiller, to memories of the Colts playing in Super Bowl XLIV in 2010, as well as his family’s legacy in Purdue Athletics.
