Kenneth Russell was an outstanding tackle on the 1954-56 football teams, and helped lead BG to it's first MAC title in 1956. He was named All-MAC in football as a junior and senior, and also gave BG its first MAC individual wrestling championship as a heavyweight in 1957. Drafted by the Detroit Lions for his excellence on pass protection, Russell played professionally for three seasons, including the Lions' 1957 championship team, before returning to Toledo in 1960.

He was inducted to the BG Athletic Hall of Fame in 1967.
