The No.65 shirt
Long-time friend of the Bucs UK, Ross Biddiscombe, will be pleased with this selection as he knew Dave after his NFL career ended and he retired to Colorado.
Stalls was a good pass-rushing defensive end who actually led the team in sacks in 1982 ahead of Lee Roy Selmon. He went on to play in the USFL after leaving Tampa.
Maulty Moore is one of only two players to have appeared for both the perfect Miami Dolphins and "perfect" Tampa Bay Buccaneers along with LB Larry Ball, whilst Dan Graham managed to spend almost two years on the active/injured roster in Tampa for all of two plays in place of Randy Grimes.
Russ Hochstein wound up starting for the Patriots in a Super Bowl and thanks to Warren Sapp's efforts, received a Tampa Super Bowl ring too having been on the team early in the 2002 season.
Now the number belongs to Jeremy Trueblood who has started for several seasons at right tackle and is getting very close to overtaking Dave for the best No.65 honour.
