Ladd was a multi-talented competitor, having experience as both a professional football player and professional wrestler. His incredible athleticism in high school allowed him to attend GSU on a basketball scholarship.
The nickname “The Big Cat” can be attributed to his significant contributions to the university’s lineage and to his impressive stature. Post college, standing 6’9 at 290 pounds, he was drafted to the American Football League by the San Diego Chargers (now Los Angeles Chargers). The team’s Hall of Fame inducted Ladd in 1981.
During his career with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), he feuded with many of the sport’s greatest contenders (including legendary André The Giant).
