SUPER BOWL CHAMPION
Raleigh McKenzie (born February 8, 1963) is a retired National Football League (NFL) guard, center and tackle. During a 16-year football career, he played for four different teams. Raleigh played guard, center and tackle for the Washington Redskins from 1985 to 1994. Nicknamed "Rallo," he played primarily as a reserve during his first season before becoming a vital starter. He started in each game after, playing any of the five positions on the offensive line; his specialty was center, but he played each position equally well. He played on two Super Bowl Championship teams in 1987 and 1991. He was named to the All-NFL Team in 1991. He also played for the Philadelphia Eagles, San Diego Chargers, and Green Bay Packers.
McKenzie attended Austin-East High School in Knoxville, where he and his identical twin brother Reggie played both at linebacker and on the offensive line (future Raiders Director of Player Personnel Joey Clinkscales was among their teammates). Raleigh was named the 11th-best recruit in Tennessee by the Knoxville News Sentinel following his senior year.
The McKenzie brothers played for the University of Tennessee from 1981 to 1984. Both played linebacker as freshmen, but Raleigh switched to center during his sophomore season. Playing alongside All-American Bill Mayo and future NFL lineman Bruce Wilkerson, Raleigh anchored a line that helped running back Johnnie Jones set school records for rushing in 1984. McKenzie's position coach was future Vol head coach Phillip Fulmer. In September 2011, the McKenzie brothers were honored as UT "Legends of the Game" during the Vols' game against Cincinati. Rallo is considered one of the 70 Greatest Washington Redskins of All-Time!
