Mizzou AD Joins Several Others With Tiger Ties in the Current Class
A two-way star out of Ladue, Mo., for Coach Dan Devine, Andy Russell lettered on Tiger teams from 1960-62 that posted a combined record of 25-3-3. He played in three bowl games, and intercepted two passes in MU's Orange Bowl win over Navy in 1961. He led the Tigers in rushing in 1961, and also returned a pass interception 47 yards for a TD in a tight 10-0 win over Oklahoma that season. As a senior, he led MU with six pass interceptions. He went on to a long and decorated NFL career with the Pittsburgh Steelers from 1963-76 (except for two years when he was in the U.S. Army). Russell played alongside Jack Ham and Jack Lambert in what is widely acknowledged to be the greatest linebacking unit of all time. He made the NFL all-rookie team in 1963, and was the Steelers' MVP in 1970. Russell played on two Super Bowl championship teams, and in seven Pro Bowls, including six straight. He was selected all-pro by the NFL writers for nine straight seasons, and was the 1973 winner of the Whizzer White Humanitarian Award for outstanding service to his team, community and country. A true iron man, Russell never missed a game during his high school, college and professional careers. His leadership qualities were evident, as he was MU's team captain in 1962, and later served the Steelers in the same capacity from 1967-76.
