The trivia idea seems to have been well received, so it is going to become a Tuesday morning staple. The only problem I think I had last week was that I made the questions way too easy. Well I think that has changed. This time not only will there be 4 players that you have to identify, but there will be at least 1 extra credit bonus question for you to ponder. So without further ado...
- I was drafted by the Bills, and played for the Dolphins as well during my short career.
- While playing at Virginia Tech, I won the Lombardi and Bronco Nagurski awards.
- I was the first player ever to win the Big East defensive player of the year award two years in a row, and the first to do so unanimously, which I did in ’98 and ’99.
- I recorded a record 17 sacks in’99 and finish with a total of 31 over the two year span, from ’98 to ’99.
- I set the combine record of 52 reps at 225 pounds in the bench press, a record that still stands.
- I spent 2 years as the head coach and general manager of the Buffalo Destroyers of the Arena Football League.
- I have authored several children’s picture books.
- I spent 3 years in the USFL before joining the Bills in 1986.
Name the two teams that I played for in the USFL.
- I hold the record of the longest play from scrimmage that didn't score a touchdown: 98 yards.
- I was a two time All-American at the University of Oregon where I played wide receiver and running back next to teammate Dan Fouts.
- I was selected to 4 straight Pro-Bowls from 1978-1981.
- I was the fourth overall pick of the 1972 draft by the St. Louis Cardinals.
- I was the first ever AFL player to rush for over 1,000 yards in a season in 1962 earning MVP honors.
- I set the record for most rushing yards in a game with 243 vs. the Jets in 1963.
- I am the only athlete to turn down being enshrined into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame because of perceived racism and exploitation by management.
- I was signed to a pro contract out of high school by Paul Brown, which was against NFL rules, so I left to play in the ORFU for the Sarnia Imperials.
What does ORFU stand for?
