From 1969-71, linebacker Tom Graham starred for a defensive unit that was often overshadowed by the team’s offensive stars and fellow Hall of Famers Dan Fouts and Bobby Moore. By the end of his Duck career, Graham has amassed a school-record 433 tackles, including an amazing 206 as a sophomore (as season that saw Graham record five 20-plus tackle games). He saved his best game for last, putting together one of the finest performances in Duck history, as he made 41 tackles (24 unassisted), recovered a fumble, and blocked a field goal.
A Harbor City, Calif., native, he was named all Pac-8, UPI All-Coast, and All-American three times, and AP All-coast and All-American twice. After being drafted in the fourth round by the Denver Broncos, he played 10 years in the NFL for the Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego Chargers, and Buffalo Bills.
