Born Dec. 19, 1972 in Orlando, FL, former Pro Bowl defensive tackle Warren Sapp made a name for himself both on and off the gridiron. Before he became one of the premiere defensive lineman in National Football League history, Sapp earned a reputation for being a fearsome linebacker and tight end at Apopka High School. In 2007, during his last professional season, Sapp was named to the Florida High School Association All-Century Team, which picked the top 33 all-time players in the 100 years of Florida high school football. After graduation, he was recruited by many big name schools and chose to attend the University of Miami, where he was converted into a defensive lineman. Sapp earned several awards and honors, including the Bronko Nagurski Trophy for Best Defensive Player and Big East Defensive Player of the Year in 1994. That same year, Sapp and his teammates went 10-1 during the regular season and ended the season ranked #3 in the nation, allowing them the chance to play for a piece of the national championship against the Nebraska Cornhuskers at the Orange Bowl. The Miami Hurricanes lost 24-17.
