Former St. Louis Rams and San Francisco 49ers receiver Isaac Bruce was named a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame for the second time on Tuesday.
In 16 seasons (1994-2000), he caught 1,024 passes for 15,208 receiving yards with 91 touchdowns. Bruce currently ranks No. 5 in NFL history in receiving yards. The four-time Pro Bowler and Rams all-time leader in receiving yards had his No. 80 retired by the team.
Back in October of 1996, Sports Spectrum caught up with Bruce, who was in his third season in the NFL, about how he went from an unknown player as a rookie, to a Pro Bowl player two years later.
The story is titled “Mo Better Bruce” and it’s written by Dave Branon.
