Former wide receiver and special teams player for the Chicago Bears.
He spent four years with the San Jose SaberCats in the Arena Football League, emerging as one of the league's best players.
He won two Arena Bowl championships, but still had to work hard to adjust to the level of intensity in the NFL.
He had one son and one daughter with his wife Alanna Lilly.
His Bears team had a long history of excellent wide receivers, like Willie Gault, who helped the team win Superbowl XX.
