I was a little surprised that I have not done a Old School Tuesday on LT, and if you are going to talk about hardest hitters Lawrence Taylor has to be on the list. Below are videos of Lawrence Taylor’s hardest hits … Most noted for his hit on Joe Theisman which effectively ended Theisman’s career. Lawrence Taylor is the standard in which defensive players are measured. His play was the stuff of legends. Many consider Lawrence Taylor the greatest defensive  football player ever.

  1. Nothing wrong than saving the “best” for last!! The man simply singlehandedly changed the defensive landscape in professional football forever.
    Glad to see that “Old School” has finally given LT his just dues…
    Nicely done!

  2. LT was one of, if not the greatest linebackers, in the NFL. He may have had troubles off the field, but on the field, he was a fierce, feared player and leader. OBJ wore an LT jersey during warmups on Sunday and it brought me back. Thank you for featuring him.
