Following a thriving college career, Ed was the first pick for the Minnesota Vikings in 1969, where he played nine seasons as an All-Pro offensive guard with four Super Bowl starts. In 1978, he was traded to the San Diego Chargers where he continued as a Pro-Bowl player for eight more seasons. He retired as a player in 1986, but did not retire from football. He coached for the Chargers, Rams, Cal Berkeley, and San Diego State where he made a profound impact on his players on the field and as men.
Since retiring from coaching in 2004, Ed has devoted his life to his art. Throughout the years he has been commissioned to do many bronze sculptures, which include the following: John Madden’s All-Pro Team, San Diego Chargers Hall of Fame, San Diego State Hall of Fame, University of San Diego Hall of Fame, San Diego Entertainer of the Year, Hall of Champions Ernie Wright Award, “On the Line” Nike Award, as well as many bronze pieces held in private collections.
