College career[edit]

At the University of Washington, Zandofsky was a stand-out offensive lineman and made first team All Pac-10 as a sophomore and a junior. In his senior year, he was a pre-season Playboy All-American. He was selected to play in the Blue-Gray all-star game as a junior and to the East-West Shrine game as a senior. In addition, he was awarded the John P.

Professional career[edit]

He was drafted in the 1989 NFL Draft in the third round (67th overall) by the Arizona Cardinals. In his second season in the NFL, he was sent to the San Diego Chargers, where he spent the next four seasons. After three seasons with the Atlanta Falcons and one with the Philadelphia Eagles, Zandofsky retired from professional football.[1]

Coaching career[edit]
