Glen Weston Titensor (born February 21, 1958) is a former American football offensive lineman in the National Football League for the Dallas Cowboys. He played college football at Brigham Young University.

Early years[edit]

Titensor attended Bolsa Grande High School and was a three-year starter at tackle on both offense and defense for the football, receiving All-County honors as a junior. He was injured in the first game of his senior year and missed the entire season. He also practiced track & field.

He received a scholarship from UCLA, where he played at nose guard and defensive tackle. He transferred at the end of his sophomore season (1978) to Brigham Young University. He was named the starter at left defensive tackle as a junior, before moving to defensive end, where he received All-WAC and Honorable Mention All-American honors.

As a senior, he registered 41 tackles (5 for loss), 13 sacks and 38 quarterback hurries. He finished his career with 88 tackles (12 for loss), 17 sacks, 57 quarterback hurries and 3 forced fumbles.

Professional career[edit]

Titensor was selected by the Dallas Cowboys in the third round (81st overall) of the 1981 NFL Draft as a defensive end. The Cowboys offense needed help and like Blaine Nye, Pat Donovan and Kurt Petersen before him, he was switched to the offensive line as a rookie. In 1982, he was lost for the year when he suffered a left knee injury in the fourth game of the season.[1]

After being a reserve guard/center during his first three seasons, he took over the left guard position in 1984 when Herbert Scott went down with an injury.[2]

In 1987, he was placed on the injured reserve list and replaced on the starting lineup with Nate Newton.[3] He was waived on August 28, 1988,[4] but was re-signed because of injuries on September, 24.[5] He was released on June 1, 1989.[6]

Personal life[edit]

Titensor is currently the owner of Timbercreek Golf Center in Lewisville, Texas.
