Title: RIP Burt Reynolds
Post by: GOLDMEMBER on September 07, 2018, 01:49:19 AM
Loved him in Boogie Nights, Smokie the Bandit and Cannonball run.

82 years. Great life!

I read he was a pro athlete before acting, what did he do?

RIP

From wikipedia:

During 10th grade at Palm Beach High School, Reynolds was named First Team All State and All Southern as a fullback, and received multiple scholarship offers. After graduating from Palm Beach High, he attended Florida State University on a football scholarship and played halfback. While at Florida State, Reynolds roomed with college football broadcaster and analyst Lee Corso, and also became a brother of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity. He hoped to be named to All-American teams and have a career in professional football, but he suffered a knee injury in the first game of his sophomore season, and later that year he lost his spleen and injured his other knee as a result of a car accident. These injuries hampered Reynolds' abilities on the field, and after being beaten in coverage for the game-winning touchdown in a 7-0 loss to North Carolina State on October 12, 1957, he decided to give up football.

Ending his college football career, Reynolds thought of becoming a police officer, but his father suggested he finish college and become a parole officer.
