Bubba Smith Brief Biography

Bubba Smith
Charles Aaron "Bubba" Smith (February 28, 1945 - August 3, 2011) was an American professional football player who became an actor after his retirement from the sport. He first came into prominence at Michigan State University, where he twice earned All-American honors as a defensive end on the Spartans football team. He had a major role in a 10-10 tie with Notre Dame in 1966 that was billed as "The Game of the Century." He was one of only three players to have his jersey number retired by the program. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1988.

Smith played nine years in the National Football League (NFL) with the Baltimore Colts (1967-1971), Oakland Raiders (1973-1974) and Houston Oilers (1975-1976). The first selection of the 1967 NFL Draft, he was the Colts' starting left defensive end for five seasons who played in Super Bowls III and V, the latter with the winning side. He was named to two Pro Bowls and was a First-Team All-Pro in 1971. Despite being 6 feet 7 inches (2.01 meters) tall and weighing 265 pounds (120.20 kilograms), he had tremendous speed. This combination usually caused him to draw two blockers.
