Schlereth was selected in the tenth round (#263 overall) of the 1989 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins, now the Washington Football Team. He played 12 NFL seasons—six with the Denver Broncos (1995–2000). He was a member of three Super Bowl championship teams (one with Washington and two with the Broncos) and was selected to the Pro Bowl for his performances in the 1991 and 1998 seasons.
What’s even more impressive about Schlereth is that during his NFL career he had 29 surgeries, with 20 of them being done on his knees.
All that said, Mark’s biggest accomplishment that the rest of the world can thank him for is bringing his daughter Avery into the world.
