Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lyle Martin Alzado (April 3, 1949 - May 14, 1992) was a professional American football defensive lineman of the National Football League famous for his intense and intimidating style of play. He played 15 seasons, splitting his time between the Denver Broncos, Cleveland Browns and most famously the Los Angeles Raiders, with whom he won a championship in Super Bowl XVIII. Alzado died after a battle with brain cancer in 1992 at the age of 43. He was born in Brooklyn, New York, to an Italian-Spanish father and a Jewish mother. When he was 10, the family moved to Cedarhurst, Long Island. His father, whom Alzado later described as "a drinker and street fighter," left the family during Alzado's sophomore year at Lawrence High School. He played high school football and was a Vardon Trophy Candidate (defense) in high school for three years.show more
