Mike Alstott Diving to save the day

Mike Alstott, Football Legend, retires at age 35

Mike Alstott has had some amazing moments in his 12 season with the Tampa Bay Bucanneers and one of them was when he got to score a touchdown for his team during their super bowl victory. Even the Glazer family stated how happy they were that Mike got to score a touchdown, citing the incident when Walter Payton helped lead his team to a superbowl but didn't score a touchdown for himself. When asked about his feeling towards the time he spent with the bucs he had this to say,

"We turned this into an elite organization," he said. "It's been a great ride, an unbelievable ride."

Just goes to show you what an unbelievably great team player this guy is. 

Mike Alstott destined for the hall of fame.

I mean come on, do you really think there is any chance that he wouldn't get in?

In 12 seasons, he rushed for 5,088 yards, second on the Bucs' career list. He also caught 305 passes for 2,284 yards and 13 TDs.

He was also one of the key cornerstones in taking the Bucanneers from being one of the worst franchises in the league to super bowl champions. Working with Derrick Brook, Warren Sapp, John Lynch, Ronde Barber and former coach Tony Dungy he helped the bucs clench the championship in 2003.

If for some reason that's not enough for you then consider this. Since 1990 there have been 7,625 players in the NFL. Mike Alstott is only the 18th since then to play for the same team for 11 or more seasons and then retire with them. Talk about Pride and Respect.
