Joe Greene is one of the most famous and trending Football player in whole world right now. Joe Greene was born on September 24, 1946 in Temple, Texas, U.S. He was born as Charles Edward Greene, but best known as Joe Greene.
He played high school football at Dunbar High School in Temple. Despite Greene's talents, the Dunbar Panthers had a mediocre record, and he was not heavily recruited by colleges. His options were limited further due to segregation of the Southwest Conference.
He attended North Texas State University (now University of North Texas), where he earned consensus All-America honors as a senior playing for the North Texas State Mean Green football team. He was drafted by the Steelers fourth overall in the 1969 NFL Draft and made an immediate impact with the team, as he was named the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Year. Greene is credited with providing the foundation upon which Steelers coach Chuck Noll turned the dismal franchise into a sports dynasty. He was the centerpiece of the "Steel Curtain" defense that led Pittsburgh to four Super Bowl championships in a six-year span.
In the famous 1979 Coca-Cola commercial in which Greene appeared, the child playing opposite him was 9-year-old Tommy Okon. Greene later admitted that three days were required to do the commercial because, after downing the entire bottle, Greene kept belching following the words "Hey kid" (after which he threw young Okon his jersey). In all, he drank 24 bottles for the takes during the three-day shoot.
He played for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League (NFL) from 1969 to 1981. A recipient of two NFL Defensive Player of the Year awards, five first-team All-Pro selections, and ten Pro Bowl appearances, Greene is widely considered one of the greatest defensive linemen to play in the NFL. He was noted for his leadership, fierce competitiveness, and intimidating style of play for which he earned his nickname. He was born in Elgin, Texas.
He was one of the most dominant defensive players in the NFL, able to overpower opposing offensive linemen with ease and disrupt blocking. Former teammate Andy Russell called Greene "unquestionably the NFL's best player in the seventies." He is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the College Football Hall of Fame, and his number 75 jersey is one of only two retired by the Steelers. Greene is also well known for his appearance in the "Hey Kid, Catch!" Coca-Cola commercial, which aired during Super Bowl XIV and cemented his legacy as a "tough football player who's a nice guy.
He was selected to 10 Pro Bowls during his NFL career and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1987. He gained widespread fame off the field for his role in the famous 1979 "Hey Kid, Catch!" Coca-Cola commercial. He joined LC Greenwood, Ernie Holmes, and Dwight White on the dominant Steelers defensive line that became known as the Steel Curtain. He is best known as Mean Joe Greene on the gridiron. He won four Super Bowl Championships with the Pittsburgh Steelers, with whom he spent his entire 13-year career.
He married Agnes Craft in 1969 and they had two sons, Major and Delon, and a daughter, JoQuel. Now he ranked in the list of most popular American football player.
