On January 10, 1964, John Wilfred Bosa was born. He is a retired American football defensive end who played three seasons for the Miami Dolphins of the National Football League (NFL).
He was a football player for Keene High School in Keene, New Hampshire, and he obtained a full athletic scholarship to play football for the Boston College Eagles.
The Miami Dolphins chose John in the first round (16th overall) of the 1987 NFL Draft. He played for the Dolphins for three seasons. In the mid-1980s, Bosa swiftly rose through the ranks to become one of the best defensive tackles in collegiate football.
The Miami Dolphins recruited him because they were desperate for defensive aid.
Joey Bosa, his eldest son, played college football at Ohio State University and was taken by the San Diego Chargers in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He is now a free agent.
His younger son, Nick Bosa, also played college football for the Ohio State Buckeyes and was taken by the San Francisco 49ers as the second overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. As a result, the Bosas became the second family in NFL history to have three members selected in the first round, joining Archie, Peyton, and Eli Manning
