Profile
Played three seasons on special teams for the Buccaneers and was one of the most popular players with the local booster clubs during his time in Tampa Bay. Set a team record for special teams tackles with 25 in 1984 and added another 24 the following season. Scored twice during pre-season, the second coming on a blocked punt return against the Falcons. Caught all three passes in the 1985 season in the same game at New Orleans when starter Jimmie Giles got hurt. Originally wore the 93 shirt very early in his rookie but soon switched to his regular 85 shirt. Started all three games for the Detroit Lions in the 1987 replacement games and had one reception for 19 yards.
