REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

Joe Klecko Biography

Endowed with great natural strength, quick feet and an enormous desire to win, Joe Klecko anchored the Jets formidable defensive line known as the "New York Sack Exchange," along with Marty Lyons, Abdul Salaam and Mark Gastineau at left end. The four combined for 53.5 sacks in 1981, and Klecko is second to Gastineau on the Jets all-time leading sack leaders (as of the 2005-2006 season).

While at Temple University, Klecko also played semi-pro football for the Aston Knights and kept his eligibility by playing under an assumed name (Jim Jones) and a fake university (Poland University). He also won two NCAA club boxing titles in the heavyweight division.

On Sunday, December 26, 2004, in a halftime ceremony, the New York Jets have honored the first player in professional football history to be selected to the Pro Bowl at three different positions (DE, NT and DT) by retiring his No. 73 jersey. Klecko became just the third New York Jet to have his number retired, joining Hall of Fame QB Joe Namath and Hall of Fame WR Don Maynard.

Klecko had a small role in the 1981 Burt Reynolds film "Cannonball Run," as well as Reynolds's "Smokey" and the "Bandit II."
