Helmets Off

Mar 6, 2018

Scott Mitchell caught up with Super Bowl and USFL Champion, offensive lineman, Bart Oates.  He started in the USFL and he thinks that the Philadelphia Stars (team he played on) could beat the 1985 Philadelphia Eagles.  Bart also enjoyed his time in the USFL.

As an center in football.  Did it ever bother him that a guy touched his butt all the time (a quarterback).  It didn't bother him.

The best quarterback that Bart played with was hall of famer, Steve Young.  They played two seasons together in San Francisco.

Bart played for Bill Parcells, he said he knew which buttons to push to get under a players' skin.  But he learned a lot playing for him.

Gauntlet of truth, the most special moment in his life was the birth of his son.  If he could play on any team during any era, which team would it be?  Bart said the 1994 49ers team that he played on.  Would you go back and play football knowing the history of concussion?  He absolutely would.  Other than parents or spouse, his biggest influence is LaVell Edwards and Roger French.

Bart is involved with the NFL Alumni Association.  They advocate for players for health and wellness and also have charity events that they sponsor.
