He was a steady scorer for the Quakers but his main contribution was his outstanding rebounding and defensive ability. In college, he opted for football where he was a two-way player at Penn State under fabled coach Rip Engle. He earned All-American honors at Penn State and in 1997 he was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. He was a first round draft choice of the Green Bay Packers and became an integral member of Vince Lombardi's teams that captured the 1965 NFL championship and Super Bowls I and II.

The Moorestown standout missed his first three shots against Hamilton on March 3, 1959. But using a dazzling array of jump shots and some good, honest-to-goodness free throw shooting, he ended up with a county-record 84 points. Douglas was one of the area's deadliest shooters that season. On this night he was downright lethal. He had been averaging just over 30 points per game and had a 45-point effort against Palmyra earlier that winter. Against Hamilton he finished with 36 field goals and 12 free throws. Douglas nailed a pair of foul shots to reach 82 points, then capped the evening with a long-range basket for his final points. Despite the introduction of the 3-pointer into high school basketball in the late 1980s, no county scorer has come within 25 points of Douglas' record."
