Brian Keith Bosworth (born March 9, 1965), also known as the "The Boz," is a former American college and professional football player who was a linebacker in the National Football League (NFL) for three seasons during the 1980s. He played college football for the University of Oklahoma, and was a two-time consensus All-American. He played professionally for the NFL's Seattle Seahawks. Bosworth was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. He attended MacArthur High School in Irving, Texas. Bosworth attended the University of Oklahoma, where he played for coach Barry Switzer's Oklahoma Sooners football team from 1984 to 1986. He was recognized as a consensus first-team All-American in 1985 and again in 1986. Known for his then radical hairstyles and criticism of the NCAA as much as his play on the field, Bosworth was never one to shy from publicity or controversy. On more than one occasion Bosworth referred to the NCAA as the "National Communists Against Athletes". He wore a shirt bearing that slogan during the 1987 Orange Bowl following the 1986 season.
