Where Are They Now?
Resides inSt. Petersburg, Florida
What are you currently doing?
I just retired last June. I was in construction before that. I am trying to get used to being retired. I am finding a lot of idle time. It's something to get used to. I've been golfing. I practice every day.
What is the fondest memory from your playing career?
I had a lot of memories, but the most memorable would be when we got on a winning trail in Pittsburgh and to see The Chief come in to the locker room smoking that cigar. That first Super Bowl we won was the most memorable moment that I shared with the Steelers, being in that locker room. I have had a lot of memorable moments making plays, but being around the locker room was the most memorable time, when The Chief would come in and talk to the players.
What was your best game?
I look back at Super Bowl IX. I made quite a few good plays in that game. I made a pass deflection that Mel Blount intercepted to help us win the game. Minnesota was driving down the field and I was able to help cause the turnover. That was our motto to make something happen. That was the most memorable play of my career in Pittsburgh.
What did you like most about playing for the Steelers?
We were a tight knit group. All of the players hung out together. We did everything together on and off the field. Being together off the field made us a better team on the field.
Teammates you were closest to during your playing days?
Mel Blount and L.C. Greenwood were my closest friends during that time.
Teammates who was the biggest character?
Frenchy Fuqua was for sure.
Do you still keep in touch with former teammates?
Yes I do. I was in Pittsburgh and got to see a few of the guys. I come back every year to the Andy Russell golf tournament. Joe Greene is the one guy I talk to right now frequently.
Do you still follow the Steelers and if so, how closely?
Whenever they come on I am always cheering for them and I want to see them win no matter what. They are my number one team.
