Defensive back Greg Eaglin (#26) graces the front of this TV Schedule card featuring the San Antonio Riders versus the Ohio Glory in their 1992 preseason matchup. The return envelope itself appeared to have been run over by a car and then mangled by a dog, but somehow it got back to me. -Regardless of the condition of the card, I am thankful that Greg took the time to sign. As of 2019, Greg resides in the Dallas, Tx area.
Defensive back Greg Eaglin started his college career at Texas, but transferred to University of Arkansas- Pine Bluff.
He was a free agent signee of the Philadelphia Eagles in 1991, but did not make the squad. Greg was selected by the San Antonio Riders of the World League in 1992 as their 28th selection. While with the Riders he intercepted one pass- during the infamous hailstorm game against the Ohio Glory, when a Pat O’Hara pass deflected off of offensive lineman Eric Harmon. He ended the season on the roster of the Frankfurt Galaxy.
Greg joined the CFL in 1993 when he signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. He’d finish out the season on the roster of the Calgary Stampeders but was released in July of 1994. Greg resigned with the Ti-Cats, and made an instant impact recording 5 interceptions in perhaps his best season as a pro. He’d sign with the Toronto Argonauts in ’95 and play with them until midway through the 1996 season. He’d then finish his career in the CFL back where he started again- back with the Ti-Cats.
In 1997, Eaglin played one lone season in the Arena leagues for the Iowa Barnstormers as a WR-LB.
