I became an earnest Cal football fan in 1978, in the days of Rich Campbell and John Tuggle. Wanting to learn more about Bears history and CFB in general, I bugged my parents to buy me a glossy encyclopedia book that happened to include photos of all the Kodak All-America teams. There was Chuck Muncie, Steve Rivera - I knew their names. And then there was an enormous defensive tackle named Sherman White, who made the 1971 team. Who was Sherman White?

  • He was big enough to excel at defensive tackle, but quick enough to start at defensive end for 11 years in the NFL with the Cincinnati Bengals and Buffalo Bills.
  • He came to Berkeley after a year at Laney JC in 1969 and immediately cracked the starting lineup as a sophomore.
  • He played his best against Stanford, including an interception return for touchdown in the 29-28 near-miss loss in 1969 and a dominating effort in 1970's 22-14 upset of the Rose Bowl-bound Indians.
  • He was twice voted first-team all Pac 8, and was a consensus choice as All-America in 1971.
And he's #23 on the 50 Greatest Golden Bears list. That's who Sherman White is.

Looks like he also had a career with the Bengals, as the number 2 overall draft pick in 1972.

He did indeed (noted in the 1st bullet). A great player.

He achieved the goal that just the best players of NCAA deserve, to play professionally in the NFL.

In my view one and all must glance at this.
