A native of Boone, N.C., Bob Matheson had a distinguished career as both a collegiate and professional linebacker. He played at Duke from 1964 through 1966, earning All-ACC laurels twice and landing a spot on The All-America First Teams chosen by the Associated Press, The Sporting News and TIME magazine in 1966.

A 6-4, 245 pounder, Matheson was Duke's team captain and most valuable player during the 1966 season and later was named to the ACC's Silver Anniversary Team. He played in the North-South All-Star Game, the College All-Star Game and the Coaches All-America Game following his senior season and was a first-round draft pick of the Cleveland Browns of the NFL.

Matheson spent 13 years as an NFL Linebacker, four with the Browns and the last nine with the Miami Dolphins. He played on three Super Bowl teams with Miami, including the Dolphins perfect 17-0 squad in 1972.

Following his pro football retirement, Matheson spent two years as an assistant football coach at Duke and spent time with the Miami Dolphins as an assistant coach.
