Offensive Line | Letters 1978-81
One of the best offensive linemen in the Bearcats history. You could make the argument that he was the best if you wanted to. Its not a difficult argument to make. But it is probably more apt to say that Yli-Renko was a solid contributor who developed into great player as a Senior.
Afterall that was the one and only season that Yli-Renko made the All Metro Conference team according to the Bearcats media guide. Yli-Renko was drafted in the 8th round of the 1982 NFL draft by the Bengals but never caught on. Instead he spent nearly a decade playing first for the USFL and in Canada.
