Pete Catan, Position: DE
Nicknamed The Sledgehammer for how he punished quarterbacks with sacks, Catan first earned recognition as an All-American at Eastern Illinois. Afterwards, Catan busted in the Canadian Football League as a member of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers for the 1981 season. In 1984, he switched to the United States Football league as a member of the Houston Gamblers. Afterwards, Catan enjoyed brief stints with the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers and San Diego Chargers.
Quote from Catan: “When I played, I sacked quarterbacks. That was kind of my forte. When I was in the USFL, I think Reggie White came in first with 23, and I finished with 22 sacks one year. Probably, the most notable comments I received from fans was, when I sacked the quarterback, it just looked like a business transaction. I'd reach out, I'd help them back up and I'd just go back to the huddle. It was business as usual. Because it wasn't about me, it was about the team.”
