1969 Profile: Tom Sestak

Defensive Tackle
No. 70
McNeese State
"Gimpy knees have robbed Tom Sestak of his All-Pro ranking, once an annual thing. But Tom managed to skip his yearly appointment with the surgeon after the 1967 campaign, and had his best season in three years. Once again, opposing quarterbacks tried to steer running plays away from him, as Tom regained much of his old mobility.
An All-AFL performer five times before his injury siege, Tom is now in his eighth pro season. He was drafted in the seventeenth round by the Bills in 1962, after playing college ball at Baylor and McNeese State."

-Jack Zanger, Pro Football 1969
