Dexter Eugene McNabb (born July 9, 1969) is an American former college and professional football player who was a fullback in the National Football League (NFL) for three seasons during the 1990s. McNabb played college football for the University of Florida, and thereafter, he played professionally for the Green Bay Packers and the Philadelphia Eagles of the NFL.

Early years[edit]

McNabb was born in DeFuniak Springs, Florida.[1] He attended Walton High School in DeFuniak Springs,[2] and played high school football for the Walton Braves.

College career[edit]

McNabb accepted an athletic scholarship to attend the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida, where he played for coach Galen Hall and coach Steve Spurrier's Florida Gators football teams from 1988 to 1991.[3] During McNabb's senior season in 1991, the Gators won their first official Southeastern Conference (SEC) football championship.[3]

Professional career[edit]

The Green Bay Packers selected McNabb in the fifth round (119th pick overall) of the 1992 NFL Draft,[4] and he played for the Packers for two seasons from 1992 to 1993.[1] After a year away from the NFL, he spent the 1995 season with the Philadelphia Eagles.[5] McNabb played mainly as a blocking fullback for the Packers and Eagles, and received few carries.

Life after football[edit]

After his NFL career was over, McNabb returned to Gainesville and graduated from the University of Florida with bachelor's degree in sociology in 2003, and also received his master's degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in administration leadership. In 2010, he worked as an associate principal at Pulaski High School in Pulaski, Wisconsin.[6] McNabb previously worked as an administrator for at-risk students at West De Pere High School in West De Pere, Wisconsin, where he also served as an assistant football coach and Head girls' track and field coach for the West De Pere Phantoms. During the 2013-14 school year, McNabb served as the associate principal of Green Bay West High School.
