Tim Irwin, a 6'7" 300 pound mountain of a man, was an anchor of the Vikings' offensive line for thirteen years.  From the time I discovered football until the time I started driving, Irwin was a model of consistency and class.  He was a powerful blocker and, at his height, he managed to get his paws on quite a few opposing kicks over his career.  In 2011, he was voted as one of the All-Time 50 Greatest Vikings.

Always one of the more insightful voices in the Vikings locker room, Irwin earned his law degree near the end of his football career.  He opened his own practice after retiring from football, and is presently a juvenile court judge in Knoxville, Tennesee.
