Todd Reesing, who owns 14 school records, is one of the most decorated players in Kansas history. He is remembered most for his sophomore season when he led the 2007 Jayhawk football team to a 12-1 season and a 24-21 win over Virginia Tech in the 2008 Orange Bowl,.
Larry Brown A tight end for the Jayhawks from 1967-70, Brown played 13 seasons in the NFL for the Pittsburgh Steelers as a tight end and tackle, where he was a three-time Pro Bowl selection and four-time Super Bowl Champion.
