Keith Bishop

Keith Bishop played guard for the Broncos from 1980-1989. He was originally a 6th round draft choice out of Baylor. He wore #54. He is most famously remembered for uttering the words "Now we got em right where we want em" during the 1986 AFC Championship Game. This was at the beginning of "The Drive" when the Broncos were at their own 2 yard line and down 7 in the fourth quarter. Obviously, the Broncos won that game, and Keith's words have lived on. He participated in the Strong Man Competion early in his career. Notice the nice sumo thong thing he is wearing in the picture. He now works as a DEA agent based out of Virginia.
