ACCOLADES:

  • Pacific Tigers Hall of Fame 1985

NOTES:

I mean I took a shot in the dark on Coslet that he’d pen a play for me and I was absolutely tickled with what he drew up. I’m always curious about an offensive minded coach’s DNA, but especially what and why they chose the play they chose to draw up, and as a member of the Walsh coaching tree- WCO, this one is an absolute treasure.

CAREER SNAPSHOT:

  • OL Jim Dombrowski was the first round pick out of Virginia by the New Orleans Saints in 1986.
  • Over his career Dombrowski developed and displayed solid, workmanlike play, opening up holes along the line for the backs and blocking for QBs.
  • He started out slowly- only starting 3 games his rookie season, becoming a FT starter during the middle of the ’87 season.

NOTES:

Jim quietly had a very successful career playing football. He had some really nice cards. Some of the cards from the 1992 Topps Stadium Club card set were really nice. Case in point, this very poignant card of Jim here on the sidelines. Now I typically hate these photos, but this one has some really nice depth of color.
