Karl Mecklenburg Shares The Secrets To Succeeding In Football And In Life

Karl Mecklenburg, Denver Broncos' All-Star Defensive Lineman

Karl Mecklenburg is a former Denver Broncos captain and All-Pro football player.

Karl Mecklenburg rose from being a college walk-on and a 12th round draft pick to a pro career that included six Pro Bowl and three Super Bowl appearances.

Karl was born in Seattle, WA. He played college at the University of Minnesota.

Considered the NFL’s most versatile player, Karl played all seven defensive front positions.  Bronco coaches wanted him at the point of attack and would move him throughout the game.  There were many games where Karl played all 7 positions in the course of a single game.

In 2001, Karl was inducted into the Denver Broncos Ring of Fame and the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame.

Since retiring from pro football in 1995, Karl divides his time between motivational speaking and his ongoing charity involvements.

Karl and his wife Kathi formed the Karl Mecklenburg REACH Foundation in 2006, in an effort to further impact the youth of Colorado.  REACH stands for rewarding experiences for all children.

Karl and Kathi have three children.

The Mecklenburgs still live in Littleton Colorado and attend West Bowles Community Church.
