David Ozio (born April 3, 1954) of Beaumont, TX is a right-handed ten-pin bowler and member of the Professional Bowlers Association (PBA). He won 11 titles on the PBA Tour. He was the 2004 Senior PBA Rookie of the Year, winning the 2004 Senior U.S. Open. Through 2008, he has won five titles on the Senior and Generations tours.[1] He is currently the General Manager of the Bowling Division for Etonic Shoe Company.[2]

Ozio won one major on the regular PBA Tour: the 1991 Tournament of Champions. He was also named PBA Player of the Year in 1991, and was inducted into the PBA Hall of Fame in 1995.[3] He was ranked #34 on the PBA's 2008 list of "50 Greatest Players of the last 50 years."

In a 1995 PBA event in Richmond, VA, Ozio broke the TV record for four-game pinfall with 1,070 pins, topping the mark of 1,050 set in 1984 by Nelson Burton Jr.. The record would stand only one year, however, as it was shattered by Bob Learn, Jr.'s 1,129 four-game total in a 1996 Erie, PA event.[4]
