William Perry: Professional Career
He had excelled at high diving and running, and he was also capable of performing a 360-degree dunk.
In 1981, he received a full scholarship to Clemson University based on his athletic accomplishments and naturally played football for the university team.
In his first year, he helped his team win the National Championship and was named a First-Team All American two years later, in 1983.
The Refrigerator began his professional career and amassed his fortune in 1985 when he was drafted by the Chicago Bears. Perry was drafted by the National Football League in the first round of the draft.
Coach Mike Ditka chose William and drew him into a feud between Ditka and defensive coordinator Buddy Ryan. Ryan disagreed with Perry’s selection and refused to play him, while Ditka convinced Ryan to use William as a fullback.
Despite tensions between the coach and defensive coordinator, The Refrigerator quickly became a fan favorite of Chicago Bears fans. William Perry became famous for the size of his ring as well.
While the average male ring size is between 10 and 12, Perry’s ring size is 25, which is the largest ring size ever recorded for a football player in Super Bowl history.
