Started all three replacement games at left tackle having been in camp originally with the Bucs in 1987 but did not make the final roster. Had been signed to a contract by the Tampa Bay Bandits but the USFL folded before he could appear for the team. Was working for a freight company when the Bucs called. Was invited to camp the following season by the Bucs but again did not make the final roster. Had been playing semi-pro ball for the Connecticut Giants before the replacement games began and was also working on a Tallahassee Sports Talk radio show.
