Linebacker | Letters 1975-77

It was a long and winding road that brought Mike Woods to the Bearcats. Woods was a star for Benaditine High School in Cleveland before taking his talents south, way south, all the way to Tampa to play for the University of Tampa. The program had just moved up to division I when he arrived. It didn't last long. The Spartans disbanded their Football program after the 1974 season.

Woods transfered to UC which was closer to his Cleveland home. He became a standout for the Bearcats almost immediately. But he really peaked during the Bearcats 1977 season. That year was a letdown after the high flying Tony Mason era but Woods turned in a dominating All American season in 77. He was so named by the Associated Press and the Sporting News as well. Woods went onto a three year career with the Baltimore Colts. A career that was cut short by a bullet that made him a paraplegic. Woods passed away in June of 2009.
