Rubin Carter

Rubin Carter wore number 68 as the nosetackle of the Broncos' famed Orange Crush Defense. Widely regarded as the first true nosetackle in NFL history, Rubin was drafted out of the U of Miami in the 5th round in 1975. He spent from 1975-1986 playing for the Broncos. He is the father of NFL player Andre Carter. He recently was fired as head coach of Florida A & M University. He shares a name with former heavyweight and wrongly accused criminal Rubin "Hurricane" Carter.

I got my picture taken with Mr. Carter when I was a kid at Mile High Stadium, it was one of the best things ever. I still have the photo hanging on my wall.
