Professional Football Player. Born Kenneth James Dyer, he attended Ann Arbor High School in Michigan and played collegiate football at Arizona State University. While with the Sun Devils, he achieved Academic All-American honors twice and led the team in pass-receiving yards in 1966. For parts of three seasons (1968, 1970 to 1971), he played at the defensive back and wide receiver positions in the National Football League with the San Diego Chargers and Cincinnati Bengals. Selected by San Diego during the 4th round of the 1968 NFL Draft, he appeared in 27 career games. On October 3, 1971 during a game with Cincinnati against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, Dyer suffered a broken neck while attempting to tackle running back John Brockington. The injury ended his playing career and left him with permanent disabilities. Following his football career, he worked in the dry cleaning industry in Arizona. He died from heart failure.
