In My Own Words: Steve Spurrier chronicles Spurrier's upbringing in Johnson City, Tennessee as the son of a minister, and his career as an athlete at Science Hill High School, where he was a three-sport letterman in football, basketball and baseball. In the SportSouth original program, Spurrier talks about his journey through college football as the quarterback at the University of Florida and winning the 1966 Heisman Trophy.

He also talks about his transition from playing in the NFL to coaching, beginning at Duke as offensive coordinator, where the ‘Fun and Gun' offense was developed, to his first head coaching job in the USFL and then back to Duke to lead the Blue Devils. Spurrier shares the excitement of returning to his alma mater in 1989, coaching the Gators to six SEC championships and a national championship in 1996, and how he got to his current position as the head coach of the South Carolina Gamecocks.
