Lawrence Taylor, nicknamed "L.T.", is a Hall of Fame former NFL linebacker. Taylor played his entire professional career as a linebacker for the New York Giants and is considered to be one of the greatest players in the history of football. He has been ranked as the greatest defensive player in league history by former players, coaches, media members, and news outlets such as the NFL Network and Sporting News. Lawrence began his career with the Giants in 1981 when he was selected second overall in the NFL Draft that year. After recording 9.5 sacks in 1981, his rookie season was considered to be one of the best in NFL history. He was named 1981's NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year, making him as of 2011 the only rookie to win an Offensive or Defensive Player of the Year award. In 1986, Lawrence had one of the most successful seasons by a defensive player in the history of the NFL. He recorded a league-leading 20.5 sacks and became one of just two defensive players to win the NFL MVP award and the only defensive player to be the unanimous selection for honor. That season, he led his team to a Super Bowl victory over the Denver Broncos, 39-20. During the 1990 season, the Giants started out 10 – 0 and finished with a 13–3 record and a Super Bowl championship. Lawrence retired from the NFL in 1993 as one of the greatest to ever play the game. He ended his career with 1,088 tackles, 132.5 sacks, nine interceptions, 134 return yards, two touchdowns, 33 forced fumbles, 11 fumble recoveries, and 34 fumble return yards.
Before going pro, Lawrence played college football for the University of North Carolina. Playing both defensive lineman and linebacker, Lawrence was team captain during his senior season and recorded 16 sacks. That same year, he set numerous defensive records and was recognized as a consensus first-team All-American and the Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year. The Tar Heels later retired Lawrence’s number 98 jersey.
