Ronald Mandel Lott was born May 8, 1959.
Lott emerged as one of the best secondary players in NFL history, tallying 63 interceptions for five touchdowns in his 16-year NFL career.
He spent much of his career with the San Francisco 49ers, playing 10 years and winning four Super Bowls along the way. He had a career-high 10 interceptions in 1986 despite an injury that forced him to sit out the last two games.
A punishing hitter, Lott was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2000. He was selected to 10 Pro Bowls and made first team All-Pro six times. His crushing tackle of Bengals running back Ickey Woods remains one of the most memorable hits in Super Bowl history.
