On a special episode of What's Your Fantasy, Jared is joined by former San Francisco 49er defensive back Dwight Hicks. 

Dwight played for the 49ers in the late 70s through the early 80s, winning 2 Super Bowls with the team.  He also played at Michigan under legendary coach Bo Schembechler, playing in back to back Rose Bowls before he entered the NFL. 

Dwight joins us to talk about his impressive NCAA and NFL careers, and the state of the NCAA and NFL right now.  Dwight shares his view on the field during "The Catch" in the NFC Championship, as well as stories from playing in both Super Bowl XVI and Super Bowl XIX, including his pre-game conversation with 49ers Defensive Co-Ordinator George Seifert about how to stop Dan Marino and the Dolphins in Super Bowl XIX.

Dwight also talked about how he is against the new proposed NCAA Football Playoff system, and which NFL Coach "should be banned from the NFL for life".  Dwight also discusses a game vs. the New England Patriots in which he couldn't remember playing portions of, and his thoughts on concussions in the NFL now, and when he played.

If having a stellar NFL career wasn't enough, Dwight is building an impressive resume in the entertainment industry staring in movies like Armegeddon, The Rock, and Jack, as well as numberous appearances in Television shows such as Cold Case, The Practice, ER, How I Met Your Mother, and more.  He discusses how watching Sean Connery on the set of "The Rock" helped him become a better actor and refine his craft.
