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.

What a wretched timeline.

"Longest yard" was his best movie IMHO.     
As you ramble on through life, Brother,
Whatever be your goal,
Keep your eye upon the doughnut,
And not upon the hole.

Not his best work, but "Cop and a Half" had a few good laughs  :D :D
