R I P Bubba Smith Star of the Police Academy Movies.
« on: August 04, 2011, 09:24:59 AM »



Charles "Bubba" Smith, an NFL lineman who won a Super Bowl with the Baltimore Colts and had a second career acting in several "Police Academy" films, has died. He was 66.

Smith's body was found on Wednesday at his home in the Baldwin Hills suburb of Los Angeles, said Los Angeles police spokesman Officer Gregory Baek.

He is believed to have died of natural causes, but the coroner's office has not made a final determination, police said.

Smith played for Michigan State University and entered the NFL when he was drafted first overall by the Baltimore Colts in 1967.

Aside from winning a Super Bowl with the Colts in 1971, Smith also went on to play with the Oakland Raiders and the Houston Oilers before he retired in 1976, after being twice selected to the Pro Bowl.

After retiring, Smith appeared in small television roles before he gained fame in "Police Academy" for playing Moses Hightower, a police recruit who was as soft-spoken as he was physically imposing.

Smith, who stood 6 foot 7 inches, starred in the first six "Police Academy" films, and also appeared in several Miller Lite commercials in which he ripped off the tops of beer cans

I went to football camp at Monticello, NY in 1971 or 72 and the KC Chiefs were Super Bowl champs. They were all there. Bubba and Dick Butkus met ua and Bubba took our scrawney arms and gave us all monkey bites on our biceps! We practiced from 6am- 9pm and WOW were we in shape after a week of that. RIP Bubba!
