Dwight Eugene Stephenson (born November 20, 1957) is a former professional American football player. He was a center for the Miami Dolphins of the National Football League (NFL) from 1980 to 1987. He played college football under coach Bear Bryant at the University of Alabama. Stephenson was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1998.[1][2]

Early life and college[edit]

Stephenson was born in Murfreesboro, North Carolina. He played college football at the University of Alabama under coach Bear Bryant. Bryant called Stephenson the best center he ever coached, and described him as "a man among children".[3] He was the team's starting center from 1977 to 1979, and was a member of Alabama's back-to-back national championship teams of 1978 and 1979.[4] He was a two-time second-team All-American; in 1978 by United Press International (UPI)[5] and 1979 by the Associated Press (AP) and UPI.[6][7] "His speed, his foot quickness, was off the chart," said Mike Brock, a former Alabama lineman. "You couldn't compare it to other people who played at that time. There was no way for defenses to deal with him."[4]

Professional career[edit]

Stephenson was drafted by Don Shula and the Miami Dolphins in the second round of the 1980 NFL Draft. He was used on special teams only until late in the 1981 season, when starting center Mark Dennard was injured. A few seasons later, Stephenson was "universally recognized as the premier center in the NFL".[8]

With the exceptionally explosive Stephenson as offensive captain, the Dolphins offensive line gave up the fewest sacks in the NFL for a record six straight seasons, from 1982 to 1987,[8] which doubled the length of the previous record. He retired from pro football in 1987, after sustaining a left knee injury in a play involving New York Jets Marty Lyons and Joe Klecko. After he left, the Dolphins' line continued to protect the pocket superbly, extending the record to nine straight seasons.

Stephenson was voted as an All-Pro five consecutive times from 1983 to 1987. He was selected to play on five Pro Bowl squads over the same span. He was named AFC Offensive Lineman of the Year by the NFLPA five consecutive times (1983-87) and voted the Seagram's Seven Crowns of Sports Offensive Lineman of the Year three consecutive times (1983-85). He started at center in the AFC Championship Game three times, in 1982, 1984, and 1985. He was the starting center in the Dolphins' two most recent Super Bowl appearances: Super Bowl XIX and Super Bowl XVII. In 1985, Stephenson was the recipient of the NFL Man of the Year Award for "outstanding community service and playing excellence."[9]

Honors and later life[edit]

On December 12, 1994 he was added to Miami Dolphins Honor Roll.

Despite the brevity of his career, in 1999, he was ranked number 84 on The Sporting News' list of the 100 Greatest Football Players. Also in 1999, he was inducted into the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame, and in 2011, he was inducted into the Hampton Roads Sports Hall of Fame, for his contributions to sports in southeastern Virginia.

In 1998 he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. "I know I’m not going to make every block, but I don’t like to ever get beat. That’s what keeps me motivated. There’s always the next play to get ready for.” Read Dwight Stephenson's HOF Bio [10]

In 2005, he was named the Walter Camp Man of the Year.

He is the namesake of Pro Football Focus' annual Dwight Stephenson Award, honoring the player the website considers best in the NFL regardless of position.[11]

After retiring from football, and as of 2013, Stephenson has worked as a construction manager and general contractor in Florida. He remains a strong supporter of the University of Alabama's football team.[12]
