Stan Brock's Career Background

Former Saints tackle Stan Brock was enshrined in the New Orleans Saints Hall of Fame in 1997 after spending 13 years with the Black and Gold.

The Saints first pick (12th overall) in the 1980 NFL Draft, Brock was a consistent anchor and vocal leader on the offensive line. He started 182 of the 186 games he appeared in for New Orleans, ranking him fourth in franchise history for games played. In addition, the Portland, Ore. native appeared in all 16 games for nine of his 13 seasons with the Saints. He recorded seven fumbles and played a huge role in New Orleans first four playoff teams. In his rookie season in 1980, he was an All-Rookie selection by UPI and Pro Football Weekly. After the 1992 season, Brock went on to play three seasons with the Chargers, where he became a Super Bowl Champion.

After retiring from pro football following the 1995 season, Brock became a coach, working in the Arena Football League for five years with the Portland Forest Dragons and Los Angeles Avengers, and working with the United States Military Academy at West Point for five more years, including two as head coach. Though he no longer coaches, Brock runs an offensive and defensive line football camp and attends camps around the nation to provide expert instruction, working with Nike. In addition, his time at West Point inspired him to create the Black and Gold Classic - named after the colors of his alma mater, the Saints and Army - which is an event that raises money to help Special Forces soldiers. He also has enjoyed a long broadcasting career, first as the Saints color analyst on radio broadcasts for two years and also a sports anchor in his native Portland.
