Greatest Wildcats Jersey Countdown: #79

#79 Ross Greenwood (OG) 1992-1996

Why?: Ross Greenwood came to KSU from Fayetteville, Arkansas, rejecting the chance to play for his hometown Razorbacks. Serving as a backup to Eric Clayton and Eric Wolford from 1992-1994, Greenwood broke the lineup in 1995 and was an instant success. Greenwood remained the starter at one guard spot for the next two seasons, never earning All-Conference honors, but still remaining a crucial piece to the Wildcat line. Greenwood never made it to the NFL, however, he was honored in 1999 by being named to the K-State All-Decade team of the 1990s, alongside Jeremy Martin, Barrett Brooks, Todd Weiner, and Quentin Neujahr.

Most Memorable Game: Facing Akron in 1995, the Wildcat offense and defense both showed up in a very impressive thrashing of the Zips. The 67-0 victory launched a 3 game span in which the Cats didn’t allow a point. The game was also remarkable for being having the highest total offensive product in school history with 590 yards. Greenwood was a starter on the line that powered that offense to such an impressive game.

Current Player on the Roster Wearing #79: None yet though the official fall roster is not available.

Odds to Replace Greenwood on This List: No odds until player wearing jersey number is confirmed.
