Bruce Charles Armstrong (born September 7, 1965) is a former offensive tackle in the National Football League from 1987 to 2000, playing all fourteen seasons with the New England Patriots. He was drafted in the first round (23rd overall) in the 1987 draft out of University of Louisville, where he was a four-year varisity athlete and was named the "Most Outstanding Lineman" following his senior season. [1] He was elected to play in six Pro Bowls, in 1990, 1991, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997. The only offensive linemen to play in more Pro Bowls as a Patriot are Hall-of-Famer John Hannah and Jon Morris. Armstrong is one of only 11 Patriots to have been inducted into the Patriots Hall of Fame and one of only seven players to have his number retired. Of 220 possible non-strike games, Armstrong started in 212 (including the last 118 of his career consecutively), making him the single player with the most starts of any Patriot. The only games he missed were in the second half of the 1992, after tearing the medial collateral ligament and both his anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments in his right knee against the Buffalo Bills in November of that year. Though it was feared that the injury would be a career-ending one, Armstrong rebounded and was back the next season. Armstrong and his wife, Melinda Yvette Armstrong, recently bought and now operates a salon in Alpharetta, Georgia, they have two children —: Candace Lynne (4/12/84) and Nicholas Charles and (5/8/95)and brian P.[1]. Bruce Armstrong got into the Hall of Fame in 2007.
