Today we lost a former HBCU standout. L.C. Greenwood died Sunday according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
A former 10th-round pick out of Arkansas Pine-Bluff, Greenwood was a member of a Steel Curtain defense that included Joe Greene, Dwight White, Jack Lambert, Jack Ham, Mel Blount and Donnie Shell. He played for the Steelers from 1969 to 1981 and earned four Super Bowl rings.
A six-time Pro Bowl selection, Greenwood retired with 73.5 sacks, second in franchise history. One of his best postseason performances came in Super Bowl X when he sacked Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach four times.
Greenwood will be missed and better be a lock to make the Black College Football Hall of Fame. He is one of the nominees for this year.Do you follow the NFL Draft?
