Hall of Honor2017

L.C. Greenwood was an inaugural member of the Steelers Hall of Honor as a member of the Class of 2017.

Jack Ham remembers it well, still. It was in 1976, when the Steelers defense was so dominant that it forced rules changes, and the team had a game in Kansas City. So dominant were the defensive linemen on his side of the field - Joe Greene at left tackle and L.C. Greenwood at left end - that he, as the left outside linebacker, went through most of the entire first half without being touched. Picked on the 10th round by the Steelers from Arkansas AM&N, Greenwood was too slight to play for many teams, but Chuck Noll and line coach Dan Radakovich nurtured his athleticism. Recognized for the gold high-top cleats he wore, Greenwood was known as a big-game player. From 1973-75 he had 25.5 sacks; in Super Bowl IX he batted down three passes; and in Super Bowl X he sacked Roger Staubach three times. He is ranked second on the team's all-time sacks list with 73.5.
