    Davone Bess: A Hang Loose Lifestyle

    Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep

    Raised in Oakland, California, Davone Bess starred at Skyline High School under the direction of Oakland area coaching legend, John Beam. Bess received a scholarship offer to Oregon State, however a post-graduation arrest led to the loss of his scholarship and more than a year in the Byron Boys Ranch Juvenile Facility. With help from Coach Beam, Bess overcame the odds and ultimately attended the University of Hawaii, where he would set school records with 293 receptions and 41 touchdowns in just three seasons. Despite his success at Hawaii, Bess went undrafted in 2008 and signed with the Miami Dolphins as an undrafted free agent. Bess not only made the team, but finished the regular season with 54 receptions, second most in NFL history for an undrafted rookie wideout. In one of the most powerful Fish Tank episodes to date, Davone candidly shares the details of his arrest after high school, as well as the lessons he learned while incarcerated. He fondly recalls his days with the Miami Dolphins, including barbeques at Paul Soliai’s house, and the camaraderie he shared with fellow wide receivers Ted Ginn, Jr. and Greg Camarillo. Davone is also extremely honest and vulnerable as he opens up about his post career struggles with depression.

    Bob Baumhower: Islands in the Stream

    Bob Baumhower: Islands in the Stream

    ** Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep

    While not widely recruited out of Tuscaloosa High School, a chance film room discovery by Bear Bryant led to Bob Baumhower playing on the defensive line for the Alabama Crimson Tide. Baumhower helped lead the Tide to a 31-4 record during his college career while earning consecutive All-SEC honors in 1975 and 1976. The Miami Dolphins took Bob in the second round of the 1977 NFL Draft and he was thrust into the starting lineup, making an immediate impact at nose tackle as a rookie. Baumhower would play his entire nine-year career in Miami, playing in 130 games with 129 starts, earning five Pro Bowl nods and five All-Pro selections (2 first-team; 3 second team) as well as he anchored the Fins Killer B’s defense of the 1980s. In 2008, he was inducted into the Miami Dolphins Honor Roll. In The Tank, Bob shared his unlikely path to the University of Alabama and how one conversation with the legendary Bear Bryant changed his life. He also recalled some rookie hazing from Dolphins great Manny Fernandez, enjoying the fun and sun of South Florida with the likes of Mark Duper, Nat Moore, and Hugh Green, partnering with Joe Namath in his first experience in the restaurant business that would lead to a life-long post-football career, and a trip to Lion Country Safari that resulted in an unexpected house pet.

    Brandon Marshall: Once You Lose It, Then You Lose

    Brandon Marshall: Once You Lose It, Then You Lose

    Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep

    Standing 6 ft. 5 in. and weighing more than 230 pounds, Brandon Marshall looks more defensive end than wide receiver, which is exactly why he was nicknamed “The Beast” during his prolific 13-year NFL career. Another reason for this moniker is his monstrous stat line, which includes 970 receptions for 12,351 yards and 83 touchdowns. While Marshall began his career with the Denver Broncos, the Miami Dolphins traded for the wideout in 2010 following three consecutive 100+ reception seasons and two Pro Bowl selections. It was in Miami, however, that Marshall’s off the field and personal challenges drove him to seek help, ultimately leading to a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). In The Tank, Brandon recalls his difficulties in Miami and candidly shares a conversation with Ricky Williams that led him down the path of recovery. He openly and honestly evaluates his role as a teammate and leader, including an incident with former Dolphins first-round draft choice Vontae Davis. Brandon also discusses his philanthropic work in the mental health space, and two of his latest endeavors in House of Athlete and the I Am Athlete Podcast.

    A.J. Duhe: I’ll Have The Pork Parmesan

    Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep

    A native of Reserve, Louisiana, A.J. Duhe followed a legendary high school career by becoming one of the top players in the Southeastern Conference at LSU. In 1977, the Miami Dolphins selected Duhe with the 13 th overall pick in the first round of the NFL Draft and he did not disappoint, tallying 83 tackles and seven sacks to be named the 1977 Associated Press NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year. Duhe would play his entire eight-year professional career with the Dolphins as both a defensive end and linebacker, earning Pro Bowl honors in his final season of 1984. He is best remembered, however, for his performance in the 1982 AFC Championship game in the Orange Bowl against the New York Jets. In that game, Duhe snagged three interceptions, returning one 35 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter to seal Miami’s 14-0 victory and a trip to Super Bowl XVII. In The Tank, A.J. shares his passion for food that may also come with a bit of individuality, recalls how tough Don Shula was, but also how much he respects the legendary Dolphins Head Coach, explains where he fit in among the Killer B’s Defense, and offers some marriage advice that only a man married 40 years can provide.

    Greg Camarillo: I Didn’t Suck

    Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep

    After turning down Harvard to walk on at Stanford, Greg Camarillo signed with the San Diego Chargers as an undrafted free agent in 2005. While with the Chargers, Camarillo was relegated to special teams duties, however in 2007, former Chargers offensive coordinator, Cam Cameron, took the helm in Miami and claimed Greg off of waivers. Camarillo caught just 8 passes for 160 yards that season, however one of those catches became the play that would define his seven-year NFL career. The Dolphins begin the ’07 season with 13 consecutive losses but on December 16, Miami quarterback Cleo Lemon connected with Camarillo on a 64-yard touchdown pass in overtime against the Baltimore Ravens, clinching the team’s first and only win of the season. In The Tank, Greg reflects on his game winning catch that has cemented his place in Dolphins history, sharing what led up to that moment and how that singular play has impacted the rest of his life. He also opens up about the difficulties of being traded, the importance of having a parking pass when entering Hard Rock Stadium on game day, being inspired by words of wisdom from Michael Jordan, and explains why he is a legend of O.J. McDuffie’s Grand Ghoul Halloween event.

    Bart Scott: What’s a Goon to a Goblin?

    Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep

    Born in Detroit, Bart Scott overcame long odds to star at Southern Illinois University. Scott was not selected in the 2002 NFL Draft and eventually signed with the Baltimore Ravens, quickly becoming a special teams standout. Following a Ray Lewis injury in 2005, Scott saw his playing time and production increase, a prelude to the best season in his career the following year. In 2006, Scott started every game for the Ravens, finishing with a career-high 145 tackles, 9.5 sacks and two interceptions en route to a Pro Bowl appearance. From 2009 through 2012, Scott played for the New York Jets, eventually teaming with Miami Dolphins legend, Jason Taylor, in 2010. Upon his retirement from football, Scott began a successful media career, including a two-year stint on The NFL Today on CBS as well as his current role as a mid-day host on ESPN New York radio. In this episode, Bart becomes the first person with no Miami Dolphins affiliation to dive in The Fish Tank. He reveals what he believes to be the Dolphins secret weapon, shares a behind-the-scenes look at how the 2008 Baltimore Ravens become the most successful defenders of Miami’s Wildcat offense but also remembers with great disdain what it felt like to lose to the 0-13 Dolphins in 2007. Finally, Bart gives OJ and Seth the real story behind his famous “Can’t Wait” moment.
