Howard Mathew "Howie" Long (January 6, 1960 - ) was the Northern Collegiate Heavyweight Boxing Champion and earned honorable mention All-American honors as a senior at Villanova, prior to the Oakland Raiders selecting him in the second round of the 1981 NFL Draft. Quick, explosive, and powerful, Long helped lead the Los Angeles Raiders to their second Super Bowl victory in four years with a 38-9 win over the Washington Redskins in Super Bowl XVIII. The 1983 championship season saw the 6’5", 268 lbs. defensive end/tackle collect 13 quarterback sacks and two fumble recoveries, earning Howie his first of eight NFL Pro Bowl appearances. In 1984, Long was named to his first of back-to-back NFL All-Pro First Teams and was named co-NEA NFL Defensive Player of the Year as well as the NFLPA AFC Defensive Player of the Year. During Howie’s 13-year career with the Oakland/Los Angeles Raider he registered 91.5 unofficial quarterback sacks, intercepted two passes (returning them for 73 yards), and recovered ten fumbles. Howie Long was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2000. Following his playing days, Howie appeared in numerous major motion pictures, made cameo appearances on television shows and in commercials, and eventually found a second home on the FOX Network’s NFL coverage. He won a Sports Emmy Award in 1997 as the "Outstanding Sports Personality/Analyst."
