Donald Andre Bly

Inducted 2014

Date of Birth



Chesapeake, VA


University of North Carolina (1996-1998)


Dre’ Bly was an immediate sensation at cornerback for North Carolina. In his freshman season he led the nation with 11 interceptions and was a consensus All-America selection. The Tar Heels went 10-2 and were ranked tenth nationally. In a bowl win, Bly added two more picks. As a sophomore, teams knew to avoid his side of the field and his interception total fell to five. Yet, Bly was once again a consensus All-America selection as UNC finished 11-1, winning the Gator Bowl and finishing the year as the nation’s fourth ranked team. While the squad had a subpar record in his final season, Bly was recognized as a first-team All-America for the third consecutive year. He was all-conference all three seasons as well, and finished his career with 102 tackles, 27 pass breakups and 20 interceptions. Drafted in the second round of the 1999 NFL Draft by the St. Louis Rams, Bly spent 11 years in the professional ranks. The All-Pro honoree and two-time Pro Bowl selection helped the Rams win Super Bowl XXXIV his rookie season. In retirement, he co-founded an athletic complex, running youth football and baseball organizations.
