Lynn Swann is a Hall of Famer that is most known for his contributions to the great Steelers’ teams of the 1970s. Lynn Swann attended the University of Southern California prior to his time in the NFL. Swann was a dynamic performer for USC and a big reason that they went undefeated in the 1972 season and were named National Champions. The following season, Swann was a unanimous choice as an All-American and entered the 1974 NFL Draft as one of the top prospects in the country. Swann would then be selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers with the 21st overall pick in the first round of the draft.
Swann was an impact player for the Steelers as soon as he entered the league, returning punts for a franchise-record 577 yards in his rookie season. The Steelers won Super Bowl IX in Swann’s first season, although he did not contribute much in the low scoring Super Bowl game. The next season was a breakout year for Swann as he led the league in receiving touchdowns with 11 and caught 49 passes for 751 yards. The Steelers were once again in the Super Bowl and Swann turned in a game for the ages catching four passes for a Super Bowl-record 161 yards and a touchdown. Swann’s Steelers won Super Bowl X and he was awarded the MVP of the game. Lynn Swann spent his entire nine-year career with the Pittsburgh Steelers and retired following the 1982 season. While he was one the Steelers, they won four Super Bowls (IX, X, XIII, XIV) and Swann was a Pro Bowler three times. Over the course of his career, Swann had 336 catches for 5,462 yards and 51 touchdowns.
