Who was the 46 Chicago Bears defense named after? You are correct if you answered Doug Plank and he is our guest this week. Doug played at Ohio State (1971-1974), but surprisingly didn’t play much. He sat behind that great Ohio State secondary with names like Tim Fox, Neal Colzie and Bruce Ruhl among others. However he made the most of his NFL career as a 12th round draft pick of the Chicago Bears. Doug is known for his vicious hits and intensity in the secondary. Listen in as Doug talks about his challenges at Ohio State and how that helped catapult his NFL career with the same intensity as he played with.
