Keith Gary (born September 14, 1959) is a former American football defensive end. Gary was selected in the first round by the Pittsburgh Steelers out of the University of Oklahoma in the 1981 NFL Draft, but didn't sign and went to play two seasons with the Montreal Alouettes of the CFL. He then played six seasons with the Steelers. He may be known for making one of the most vicious facemasks in NFL history. During a week 6 game against the Bengals he grabbed Ken Andeson by the facemask and the neck area. He brought him down, ripping his facemask off in the process.
