PPI: When did you first know you wanted to play in the NFL?
Randy: The first time I wanted to play in the NFL I was 9 years old and watching Super Bowl XIII. The Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Dallas Cowboys 35 – 31. At that point I became a die-hard Steelers fan.
PPI: Tell us about your road to the NFL?
Randy: I chose to attend a smaller school, Tennessee State University, rather than a larger college. TSU had a rich athletic tradition of producing pro football players. In that light, I became a four year starter at defensive back earning All-Conference as well as All-American honors. After playing in two All-Star games, the Blue-Gray and Senior Bowls, I was the second pick by the Denver Broncos in the 1994 NFL draft.
