A linebacker from Chattanooga, Healy’s All-America recognition as a defensive standout set the stage for numerous linebackers to follow in later years.

In 1968, Healy was named First Team All-American by the Central Press and Second Team All-American by The Sporting News.

Healy was also selected as a First Team All-SEC player as a sophomore.


Healy played superb defense as a junior after hurting his knee the previous spring. As a senior, Healy topped the team in tackles. He also posted six interceptions in his career.

Healy played in the East-West Shrine Game and Senior Bowl.

Selected by the St. Louis Cardinals in the 1968 draft, Healy played two seasons in the NFL.
