bridge 064

Joe Linta graciously gave me his recipe for chowder and we thank him so much! Linta is an NFL agent for a ton of guys including Baltimore Raven’s quarterback, Joe Flaco and the Cleveland Brown’s quarterback, Brian Hoyer, that’s just naming a few of the greats  he represents. When he’s not doing his agent thing, he’s a football coach at  Hamden Hall in Hamden, Connecticut. He’s a guy that gives back a lot and teaches that to those he represents. Linta is the father of two sons and married to Kathy, who’s a doll and who was at Purdue University at the same time I was. Enjoy the chowder!
