Profile
Replacement team player who started all three games at linebacker and did enough to get himself a regular roster spot as a back-up for the rest of the season when the strike ended. Was in Buccaneer camp before the 1987 season but was cut after three pre-season games when the rosters were reduced to 60 players. Led Illinois State in tackles in both his junior and senior seasons. Was in Buccaneer camp the following season but again did not make the final roster. Never played in the NFL again after leaving Tampa Bay. Originally wore the 91 shirt as a rookie but wore 54 as a replacement player.
