Introducing this week’s Twitch Prime Legend in Madden Ultimate Team: The Minister of Defense…

Introducing this week’s Twitch Prime Legend in Madden Ultimate Team: The Minister of Defense, Samurai Mike Singletary, with an 83 OVR!

Mike played linebacker for Chicago Bears from ’81-‘92 and was the leader of one of the most ferocious defenses in NFL history, the ’85 Bears. He was a 10× Pro Bowler, 2× NFL Defensive Player of the Year, and won the NFL Man of the Year in 1990 for his charitable work. What a dude.

Today, Singletary is an ordained minister and works with the March of Dimes Foundation to prevent infant mortality. He also supports the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, which helps players make a difference in their communities.

As if that wasn’t enough, he’s also got some sick flows. Check out his rhymes from the hottest dance track of 1985, “The Super Bowl Shuffle”

“I’m Samurai Mike I stop’em cold.

Part of the defense, big and bold,

I’ve been jammin’ for quite a while,

Doin’ what’s right and settin’ the style,

Give me a chance, I’ll rock you good,

Nobody messin’ in my neighborhood.”

Preach Mike. Preach.
