The too short, too small defensive lineman who played saxophone in the marching band at Roseville High School and went on to play college ball with Arizona Wildcats, is now a member of the College Football Hall of Fame. Bruschi was announced this morning as part of the 2013 induction class. Bruschi had 19 sacks in 1993 — more than Arizona has had as a team in each of the past two seasons  and helped the cats lead the nation in rushing defense (30.1 yards per game). Bruschi earned second-team All-America honors in 1993, was a consensus All-American in 1994 and a unanimous All-American in 1995 and in  his last game — a 31-28 win at Arizona State in 1995 — Bruschi tied the NCAA record of 52 sacks, shared by Alabama’s Derrick Thomas.

Bruschi became a New England Patriot, winning 3 Superbowl titles, earning two All-Pro selections, and was apart of the 16-0 regular season 2007 Patriots. Bruschi also went against the odds, overcoming a stroke, and continuing playing football at a high level.

Bruschi serves as an NFL analyst for ESPN now.
