Dennis Wayne Byrd (August 31, 1946 – July 22, 2010)[1] was one of the most dominant defensive tackles in the Atlantic Coast Conference history earning first team All-ACC honors in each of his three years of varsity competition at North Carolina State University and was a consensus first-team All-American as a Senior in 1967.
