Mike Singletary left his mark on Baylor University. As soon as he graduated, the school inaugurated the Mike Singletary Award. It is given each year to the senior football player who is best recognized for "contribution to Baylor football while bringing honor to the school both on and off the field." Singletary was a 6-1, 232 pound linebacker who lettered four years. He had 97 tackles as a freshman, 232 (a school record) as a sophomore, then 188 and 145. The total, 662, set a school record. In 1978, he had 33 tackles in a game against Arkansas, 31 against Ohio State. He was all-Southwest Conference three years and first-team All-America two years. In 1979 and 1980 he won the Davey O'Brien Award, given to the outstanding player in the Southwest. (The award has since been changed to a national quarterback trophy.) In 1980, he helped Baylor to the Southwest Conference championship. Singletary played 12 years with the Chicago Bears 1981-92 and was in the Pro Bowl ten times.
