Born: 19 December 1971
Best known as: 300-pound defensive lineman for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Warren Sapp is the 300-pound former NFL lineman whose lightfooted appearance on Dancing With the Stars in 2008 made him an unlikely ballroom hero. Sapp played 13 seasons in the NFL -- nine with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1995-2003) and four with the Oakland Raiders (2004-07). A burly defensive tackle who wore #99, he won a reputation for crunching hits and for a blunt quotability with the press. He was named the NFL's defensive player of the year in 1999 and won a Super Bowl with Tampa Bay in 2002. He retired at the end of the 2007 season and moved into the broadcast booth in 2008 as a commentator on the NFL Network and on Showtime. Later that year he was paired with professional dancer Kym Johnson on Dancing With the Stars.
Sapp went to the University of Miami. He was a first-round draft pick of the Buccaneers in 1995… Sapp’s opponents on Dancing With the Stars included TV
personality Brooke Burke and teensy actress Cloris Leachman.
