Happy Birthday Jack Lambert #58
John Harold "Jack" Lambert (born July 8, 1952, Mantua, Ohio) is a former NFL linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He played football for Kent State, winning two All-Mid-American Conference linebacker honors. He won four Super Bowls in his 11 year career with the Pittsburgh Steelers and is recognized as one of the best middle linebackers in the history of the NFL.
He was my idol growing up and since I played Pop Warner with the Stealers in WNY everyone wanted to be like Jack Lambert. We imitate every one of his moves and would hit like Jack Lambert, we even made belive that we were missing our 2 front teeth.
Here is a tribute video to #58, In 2004, the Fox Sports Net series List named Jack Lambert as the toughest football player of all time. Thank you for the great years with the Steelers, you were an Inspiration to all!
