    Re: Offensive lineman

    Oliver Ross comes to mind and also Ben Bruns. After that, I'd say Patrick Augafa(sp?).

    Regardless of all American status, Keith Sims is a badass... I always liked Luke Vander Sanden too


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Offensive lineman

    Ed Bock. Look him up. Total old school, but the first real awesome lineman at ISU. I also believe he was our first All-American.

    Re: Offensive lineman

    Ed Bock was an All-America Guard at Iowa State University in 1938.
    In the middle of the 1938 season, the Iowa State football team faced a challenge that few believed they could survive. They were heading to Nebraska to face the Cornhuskers, a perennial powerhouse that had stifled ISU for almost two decades. But the Cyclones marched into Lincoln and, in front of 28,000 hostile fans, gritted out an 8-7 victory that propelled Iowa State to one of the most successful seasons in school history. ISU dominated the line on both sides of the ball, using a toughness and determination to neutralize Nebraska’s size and speed. No one was more tough and determined on the line that day than Iowa State’s senior captain, Ed Bock.

    Ed Bock passed away on July 31 at the age of 87. But his memory will live on thanks to a relentless drive to control the line on offense and defense as a two-way guard. It was a combination of unmerciful effort and an unusual agility for a man of his size that earned Bock the distinction of being the first, and only, Iowa State football player inducted into the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame.

    Bock’s induction in 1970 was due in no small part to the success of that 1938 Cyclone team. Widely regarded as Iowa State’s all-time best, the 1938 squad rode a ten-game unbeaten streak, including the final two games of 1937, into the season finale against Oklahoma. Despite falling to the Sooners 10-0, the Cyclones finished 7-1-1, a record that today is bested by only one other team in school history. Bock was the heart-and-soul of those teams, especially central in the win against Nebraska that snapped a 19-year skid against ISU’s longtime conference foe.

    “Bock would take over games and dictate how we would run our offense,” said Everitt “The Rabbit” Kischer, ISU quarterback and Bock’s teammate for three years. “He was quick and powerful, yet amazingly agile for his build.”

    Kischer and Bock were both selected to All-America teams in 1938, but Bock became the first consensus first-team selection in Iowa State history. Bock was also a two-time Big-6 guard and played in several postseason all-star games, including the 1938 East-West Shrine Game. Kischer, who roomed with Bock throughout college, remembered Bock more for his tenacity than anything else.

    “Ed played so hard he lost his teeth on several occasions,” Kischer said. “We always teased him that he spent more time looking for his teeth than he did in the huddle.”

    Whether it was sheer ruthless aggression, or toothless aggression for that matter, Bock’s persistence helped him succeed well beyond his collegiate playing days. Despite being drafted by the Chicago Bears in 1938, Bock turned down an opportunity to play professional football, as well as an assistant coach offer from Iowa State, to pursue his graduate degree in engineering. After two years, Bock began a career at Monsanto Chemical Company in 1941 and would stay for 31 years, rising to become president and CEO. During his time, Monsanto grew into a multi-billion dollar corporation and was the second largest chemical company in the United States. Among other things, Monsanto became known for developing the artificial playing surface “Astroturf” first used in the Houston Astrodome.

    Iowa State and Monsanto both benefited from the drive and determination of Ed Bock. It was his character that pushed Iowa State to victory against Nebraska in 1938, and one that had him recognized in 1970 by the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame.

    “Ed was one of those guys that never gave up,” Kischer said. “That, more than anything else, made him the success that he was. That’s what we’ll all remember most.”

    Good read, I'm sure this has been posted a thousand times but I was really impressed...

    Re: Offensive lineman

    I know I'm kind of prejudice but the "Jersey Boys" from '71. Both of whom were All-Staters in NJ and both were the starting guards on the first bowl team.

    Mike Terrizzi (1st team All-State RB)
    Ray Harm (Hon. Mention All-State WR)

    Ray only played 4 games his senior year in HS (broke his arm)

    But looking at it - a WR and a RB - playing guards.

    Looking back now, its easy to see that Majors knew of the importance of speed...

    Re: Offensive lineman

    I had a friend that was an itech major in 94 or so. They showed the new grad hiring stats in some orientation. The average starting salary of an itecher was like 150k/yr or something. Apparently this was Keith Sims major and he filled out the graduation survey quite literally, and the career center staff performed the arithmetic quite literally as well.
