Career highlights and awards

Samuel Lee Gash Jr. is a former American football fullback, who attended Penn State University.

He was drafted in the eighth round of the 1992 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots. A two time Pro Bowler in his twelve year career, Gash played for the Patriots (1992-1997), Buffalo Bills (1998-1999, 2000), and the Baltimore Ravens (2000-2002). In 1999, Gash earned the unique distinction of being the first back in NFL history to be selected to the Pro Bowl without carrying the ball at all during the regular season[1]. He won a Super Bowl with former New England teammate Ben Coates in 2000, both having been acquired by the Ravens. Gash was cut by the New Orleans Saints one day before the 2004 training camp began.

Gash began his coaching career with the New York Jets as an assistant running backs coach in 2005. In January 2007, Gash was hired as the Detroit Lions' assistant special teams coach. In 2008, he became the Lions' Running Backs Coach.

Gash has a younger brother, Eric, who played outside linebacker collegiately at the University of North Carolina and a cousin, Thane, who played safety for the Cleveland Browns and San Francisco 49ers[2].
