Keith Sims: The Left Side

A Baltimore native who played his college football in Warren, New Jersey, Keith Sims would go on to enjoy a standout career as a left guard at Iowa Sate University, which would ultimately land him in the school's Athletics Hall of Fame. In 1990, looking to bolster their offensive line and protect franchise quarterback Dan Marino, the Miami Dolphins selected Sims in the second round of the NFL Draft after also taking left tackle Richmond Webb with their first-round selection. For the next decade, Sims and Webb would anchor the Dolphins offensive line and earn multiple trips to the Pro Bowl, with Sims reaching that height three times from 1993 to 1995. In The Tank, Keith shares how much he enjoyed making up half of the Fins 1-2 punch on the offensive line alongside Richmond Webb for so many years, explains why it might make more sense to take a cab instead of a limo to a game against the Buffalo Bills of the 1990s, recalls a meal that nearly led to him missing the team's flight to Tokyo, and opens up about his struggles with weight and depression following his playing career. Keith also shares how, along with his wife and children, he tours the country as the Soulful RV Family.
