Matt Leinart wants to give players mouth-to-mouth
Just in case Matt Leinart's NFL career doesn't pan out, he is preparing for life after the gridiron. Television? Too easy. Bachelor? Why would he want to lower his dating standards. No, young Matthew is going to be an EMT.
Matt Leinart has perfected new skills that may turn out to be a lifesaver on the football field -- or anywhere else. The Arizona Cardinals' quarterback, hoping to raise awareness of how American Red Cross training can save lives, demonstrated CPR and the use of a defibrillator on a training dummy.
