“Football is in Dylan Raiola’s blood. He’s the son of former Nebraska and Detroit Lions offensive lineman Dominic Raiola.

In 2022, Raiola threw for 2,435 yards and 22 touchdowns while completing 64% of his passes. Away from football, Raiola is strong in his faith in Jesus Christ. “Without God, I wouldn’t be able to do anything I do now,” he said.”
