Memphis, Tennessee (PRWEB) January 26, 2016
Equias Alliance, LLC is very proud to announce that Glenn Blackwood, a Managing Consultant and member of the Equias Alliance Board of Directors, was recently named by the Miami Dolphins as one of its top 50 players in team history. Glenn, along with other great Dolphins’ players such as Bob Griese, Larry Csonka, Paul Warfield and Dan Marino were selected based on a vote by alumni, fans, the media and a blue ribbon panel to help commemorate the Dolphins' 50th season. The team was honored at halftime of the Dolphins' home game against the New York Giants on December 14, 2015.
Glenn starred for the Texas Longhorns in the defensive backfield from 1976-1978. His versatility allowed Texas coaches to play him at all four positions during his time with the team.
Glenn played nine seasons (1979-87) with the Dolphins and started all but two games from 1980 through 1985. He teamed with his brother, Lyle Blackwood, in the defensive backfield of the “Killer B’s” defense, including the Super Bowl seasons of 1982 and 1984. His total of 29 career interceptions is tied for fourth on the Dolphins’ all-time interception list, and he led the Dolphins with six interceptions in both 1984 and 1985. During the course of his career with the Dolphins, Glenn was also selected as a team captain.
When asked by the media about his reaction to his selection to the 50th Season All Time Team, Glenn responded: “I am a bit overwhelmed by this honor. I look at the others included and have a hard time putting myself in any category they hold as football players. It is very humbling, but deeply appreciated. I am so thankful that I was blessed to be a part of the Dolphins organization coached by Don Shula.”
David Shoemaker, President of Equias Alliance, commented that: “Glenn Blackwood has always been an outstanding performer both on and off the playing field. He has been a valued consultant to banks in the Southeastern United States; a leader in the bank-owned life insurance industry; and an integral part of Equias Alliance having been one of the company’s founders. We are extremely fortunate to have someone with his talent and ability as part of our firm.”
Glenn has more than 25 years of experience providing consulting advice to banks; has spoken at numerous state and national banking conventions; and has assisted hundreds of banks with the design and implementation of bank-owned life insurance and nonqualified benefit programs to help those financial institutions recruit, retain and reward key officers and directors.
