Robert Todd Hewko (born June 8, 1960) was the starting quarterback for the Florida Gators during the early 1980s, and a former professional NFL football quarterback, playing for such teams as the Dallas Cowboys[1] and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.[2]

Hewko is an executive and owner of RockStar Investment Group with long-time friends and business partners Vince Neil (lead singer of Mötley Crüe), Mark Daniels and Chief Joe Dan Osceola, which acquired ownership in an AFL football team, the Jacksonville Sharks, Jacksonville Florida in April 2014.[3]

Hewko is color commentator for the Legends Football League on YouTube, calling the games alongside play by play man and LFL commissioner Mitch Mortaza. He replaced former ESPN analyst Sean Salisbury halfway through the 2012 season, after Salisbury frustrated producers and league executives with unprofessional antics. Hewko had previously worked with Van Earl Wright since taking over the position until Mortaza took over for Wright at the start of the 2013 playoffs. In July 2014, Mortaza left the broadcast booth and Hewko was joined by Chet Buchanan, a midday radio jockey for 98.5 KLUC in Las Vegas, however as of May 2015 Mortaza was again working with Hewko.
