Bob Asher Offensive Tackle 1969 First Team All-American Associated Press and NEA
Virginia native Asher started every game of his three-year varsity Vanderbilt career, concluding with the Associated Press and NEA naming him to the First Team All-American squad at tackle.
Asher was known as an impenetrable pass blocker, regarded by observers as one of the top blocking tackles in school history. He also earned First Team All-SEC and All-South honors as a junior.
Following his college career, Asher played in the College All-Star Game, the Senior Bowl, the North-South Shrine Game and the Canadian American Bowl.
In 1970, he was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys. One of his teammates with the Cowboys was a former Vanderbilt teammate, defensive lineman Pat Toomay. Together, they played key roles in the Cowboy’s 1971 squad that eventually won the Super Bowl.
