Ed Tandy McGlasson is a former lineman in the National Football League where he played with the Giants, the Jets, and the Rams. Ed's call to ministry began in college after being healed from a career-ending knee injury that led to his conversion while playing for Youngstown State. Ed eventually entered the ministry in 1984 and started traveling and sharing his testimony and doing evangelistic crusades. In 1988 Ed planted the Stadium Vineyard in Anaheim, California, and has been a pastor there since.
His Dad, Lt. Ed Tandy, was a Navy test pilot. On Memorial Day weekend 1956, he was ripping through the skies at 600 miles an hour over Monterey Bay. Suddenly, his plane spun out of control.
Ed Tandy has spent his life juggling a variety of different activities, and while his exterior is one of calmness and control, behind the scenes there is a constant balancing act going on just to stay afloat. Tandy has to stay up late into the night to finish his school work and wake up early the next day for practice — he has no letup. This struggle is one he is willing to make, though, as to not do so is simply not an option.
His newfound love for rugby and the skill set he acquired at Back Bay was developing his tackling and agility. This improvement helped Tandy excel in football, and he went into his senior season ranked No. 7 on a Southern California Linebackers Watch List.
