About Al Del Greco

Al Del Greco was raised in Miami where he played different sports throughout the year. His grade school soccer team won a state title, and he played both soccer and football at Coral Gables High School before earning a scholarship from Auburn University.

In his 17-year NFL career, he played for the Green Bay Packers, Arizona Cardinals and Houston Oilers (later the Tennessee Titans) from 1984 to 2000.  Al played in some of the most famous games in NFL lore during his career, including “The Comeback,” the “Music City Miracle,” and “The Tackle.” Al finished his 17 NFL seasons making 347 of 449 (77%) field goals and 551 of 554 (99%) extra points, giving him a total of 1,584 points, which ranks him 17th on the NFL's list of all-time leading scorers.

A four-year letterman at Auburn, Al completed 110 out of 111 extra points in his college career. He also set the SEC record for field goal attempts in a single game and field goals made in a single game in a 1982 game versus Kentucky when he made six out of his seven attempts.  Those 18 points still stand as a school record for most points scored by a kicker in a single game. His 236 career points place him fifth on the Auburn career scoring list.

Currently residing in Birmingham, Ala., Al is the boys golf coach and the football team’s kicking coach at Spain Park High School.  He also co-hosts “The Opening Drive” on WJOX-FM in Birmingham, Ala., with Jay Barker and Tony Kurre.
