Career highlights and awards

Robert Chadwick Berry (born March 10, 1942 in San Jose, California) was a quarterback in the NFL for 12 years. He went to 1 Pro Bowl. Berry played in Super Bowls VIII, IX and XI as a member of the Minnesota Vikings, and also played for the Atlanta Falcons. He was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles in the eleventh round of the 1964 NFL Draft, but never played for the Eagles.

Berry has a beautiful daughter, Jennifer (born in 1972) and an amazing son, Michael (born in 1993) and two grandchildren.

Berry came to the NFL from the University of Oregon, where he was a three-year letter winner under coach Len Casanova. At Oregon, Berry teamed with future Pro Football Hall of Famers Mel Renfro and Dave Wilcox. Berry led the Ducks to three consecutive winning seasons and the 1963 Sun Bowl, at which Oregon beat Southern Methodist 21-14.

Berry was named a first-team All-American after his senior season, despite being edged out as All-Pacific-8 quarterback by Craig Morton of California. Berry's teammates named him the team's outstanding player at the end of his senior season in 1964. He played in the East-West Shrine Game and the Hula Bowl. In 1985, Berry received the university's distinguished alumnus award.

Currently, Berry is retired and living in Gardnerville, Nevada.
