    R.I.P Bubba Smith

    Posted by Michael David Smith on August 3, 2011, 6:28 PM EDT


    Charles Aaron “Bubba” Smith, the No. 1 overall pick in the 1967 NFL draft who later found fame as an actor, has died at the age of 66.

    After ending an All-American career at Michigan State in 1966, Smith was taken first in the draft by the Baltimore Colts. He played on Baltimore’s defensive line for five years, then was traded to the Oakland Raiders, where he played in 1973 and 1974, and finished his career with the Houston Oilers in 1975 and 1976.

    The 6-foot-7, 265-pound Smith was one of the biggest players of his era. He won a ring at Super Bowl V and went to two Pro Bowls.

    After retiring, Smith became an actor. He was best known for playing Moses Hightower in the first six Police Academy movies.


    One helluva player and a fun actor. R.I.P Bubba

    Wow that really is a sad thing to hear. I LOVED him in the Police Academy movies! lol
    Any report I've seen about him has been that he was a great human being.

    rest in peace
