A two-year team captain, Breunig was named Arizona State’s MVP in 1974, and he appeared in the Coaches All-America Bowl, the East-West Shrine Game and the Hula Bowl following his senior season. Selected in the third round of the 1975 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys, Breunig spent ten seasons with the team. A three-time Pro Bowl selection, he led the Cowboys in tackles four seasons, paving the way to three Super Bowl appearances and a win in Super Bowl XII. The recipient of the 1974 Dick Butkus Silver Anniversary Award in 1999, Breunig is a member of the ASU Sports Hall of Fame and ASU Football Ring of Honor. A member of the All-Time WAC Football Team, he has served on multiple charitable boards, including the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Young Life.
