Brad Banks had one of the best seasons of any Iowa football player ever and finished second in the Heisman Trophy race that year after throwing for 2,573 yards and 26 touchdowns to just 5 interceptions. He also added 423 yards on the ground.
Despite his collegiate production that year, Banks NFL career never took off as he went undrafted in the 2003 NFL Draft and spent just a hot second in camp with the Washington Redskins. From there he went on quite the journeyman professional football career spending six seasons in the Canadian Football League and another season playing for the Iowa Barnstormers of the Arena Football League.
After his playing career, Banks has been involved in a few ventures. He spent time working in business development for a company called Apheta and another company called Bernie Lowe & Associates, Inc, and he also spent time as a fundraiser for Racers Against ALS Foundation.
Banks also started the Brad Banks Football Camp and serves as a committee member of the Davey O’Brien Award Committee. Recently, he launched a new company called Brad Banks and Associates, LLC, which appears to be a financial services company.
