Number 18 in our countdown is former SEMO offensive lineman Dan Peiffer.

He was selected in the 14th round of the 1973 NFL draft by the St. Louis Cardinals.

Peiffer later played for the Chicago Bears from 1975-77, where he blocked for Hall of Fame running back Walter Payton. He eventually finished his career in 1980 with the Washington Redskins.

Dan Peiffer's son, Blake, was a star linebacker for Southeast Missouri State University.
