Stan Ellsworth Early Life and Education
Ellsworth’s formative years were spent in the Carolinas, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and Pennsylvania. He was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, and nurtured in these locations. Throughout his formative years, Ellsworth was immersed in the landmarks and stories of American history. After earning a bachelor’s degree in history from Brigham Young University and a master’s degree in psychology from the University of Utah, Ellsworth played linebacker for the National Football League (NFL) for both the Detroit Lions and the Seattle Seahawks. He was drafted by the Detroit Lions in the sixth round of the 1998 NFL Draft.
After that, he worked as a coach for the NCAA at East Stroudsburg University in Pennsylvania, the University of Utah, the University of Arizona, and the University of Pennsylvania, among other institutions. Ellsworth packed up his two young children and relocated back to Utah, the state of his birth, after tragedy hit his life and claimed the life of his wife.
Stan Ellsworth Career
He began his career as a high school history teacher at Highland High School in Salt Lake City, where he remained employed for almost ten years. He remained there for the entirety of his teaching career. Ellsworth’s objective, both when he was teaching in the classroom and now when he was hosting his weekly television program, has always been to “wake people up” to the stories of our founding fathers and mothers and the sacrifices they made in order to create this nation.
In recent years, the responsibilities of the history instructor in the classroom and the television have begun to converge. Ellsworth, in his capacity as the host of American Ride, has been giving speeches at school assemblies, where he has received praise of the highest caliber from both the students and the faculty.
