David Wilcox was enshrined in the year 2000 by the Pro Football Hall of Fame for his exceptional and ferocious outside linebacking with the San Francisco 49ers of 1964-1974. He missed only one game and was elected to the Pro Bowl seven times, and, in 1967, received the Len Eshmont award. Wilcox had 14 interceptions in his career, even though the opponents usually ran, or passed, to the opposite side because he was so disruptive. In 1973, coaches gave him a 1,306 rating when 750 was considered excellent. That same year, he received the NFL Player’s Association Linebacker of the Year award.
Inducted into the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame in 2001.
