    Larry Anderson had career most players dream about in NFL--- 2 super bowl rings-held kickoff return record for Super Bowl - steelers from 1978-1984. Tech hall of fame . At tech he was d back and lot of INTs for td if I remember correctly . SUPERSTAR

    Re: What are your top Tech Football Players of all time?

    My wide receivers -- before getting upset--mine is based on 3 factors---1. great Tech Career 2. Great NFL career 3. came back to coach at Tech or accomplished great things later in life after football.

    Mike Barber NFL 1976-1985 Second Round draft pick (TE) - dedicated life to Prison ministry ...
    Pat Tilley NFL 1976- 1986 pro bowl awesome Tech career and coached at tech after retiring
    Roger Carr NFL 1974-1983 pro bowl -31 NFL tds and came back to coach at Tech
    Billy Ryckman NFL 1977-1983 first 2 NFL tds on Monday Night football -- had one of greatest Tech games in horrendous , freezing weather--2 late TDs against one of the mississipi teams to win

    as a friend and all round great guy I think of Tommy Spinks first -- he was main man for Terry long before they came to Tech

    Imagine if DE Eric Shaw had played more than 1 season at Tech. By his senior season Shaw might have actually killed a QB / RB.

    Doug "Tank" Landry was one of our greatest linebackers ever.
