"Imagine yourself sitting on top of a great thoroughbred horse. You sit up there and you just feel that power. That's what it was like playing quarterback on that team [the Steelers]. It was a great ride."
Terry Bradshaw so loves Louisiana Tech, his alma mater, that the Hall of Fame quarterback donated all four of his Super Bowl rings to the university. A native of Shreveport, La., he entered the National Football League in 1970 when the Pittsburgh Steelers, coming off a 1-13 season, made him the No. 1 overall draft pick. It took a while for Bradshaw to adjust as a pro, but once he and the vaunted Steel Curtain defense hit their stride, Pittsburgh emerged as one of the greatest teams of all time, winning four Super Bowls in a six-year span. Bradshaw is now a talkative NFL studio analyst for Fox who projects a good ol' boy image.
