Eric Sanders (1976-80/ Football)


Sanders, a Wooster High School graduate, played the offensive line for the Wolf Pack as a freshman in 1976. After taking two years off from football, he rejoined the team for the 1979 and ’80 seasons. As a senior, he was a second team All-America selection by the Associated Press. Drafted in the fifth round by the Atlanta Falcons, he began a 12-year NFL career in the fall of 1981, six years each with the Falcons and the Detroit Lions. A veteran of over 170 NFL games, Sanders always handled the long snapping duties for both teams even though he was never an actual center on the offensive line. His playing time came at guard and center, and in 1991, he had a personal high 14 starts with the Lions. He retired following the 1992 season. Sanders went on to reside in Alpharetta, GA.
