Sport: Football (1993-95)
A three time All-Southwest Conference selection and All-American at defensive end in 1995, he was a member of the 1995 American Football Coaches Association Good Works team for his community involvement off the field as well. He played a major role in leading Texas to the final Southwest Conference Championship, a 10-1 regular season in 1995 and a Bowl Alliance berth in the 1996 Nokia Sugar Bowl.
He was a second round draft choice of the Jacksonville Jaguars in 1996 and played his entire eight year NFL career with Jacksonville, earning Pro Bowl recognition in 2000. He was known as one of the quickest, hardest hitting Longhorns and caused five fumbles in his final season of 1995. For his career, he was credited with 24 sacks, which ranked eighth among all Longhorn defenders at the time.
He retired from pro football after the 2003 season and now lives with his family on a ranch near his hometown of Fairfield.
