ULM’s Brister in Corporate Energy Sales
Throughout a pro football career that spanned 15 seasons, QB Bubby Brister was known as a guy whose Louisiana mannerisms never deserted him. Sure enough, it wasn’t long after his playing days were done that the former UL Monroe standout made his way back home.
Now 50 years old, Brister makes his home in Mandeville with his wife, Bonnie, and their two children. When he’s not working in corporate sales for Warrior Energy Services, he regularly hosts hunts on his property in Northern Louisiana and leads fishing charters in the Gulf of Mexico.
Brister spent his first two collegiate seasons at Tulane before transferring home to ULM — then known as Northeast Louisiana University — prior to the 1984 season. As a senior in 1985, Brister led the Southland Conference in passing and total offense, earning first team all-conference honors in the process.
In the NFL, Brister was a three-year starter for the Steelers (1988–1991), who had selected him in the third round of the 1986 draft. He spent his later years almost entirely as a backup, winning a pair of Super Bowl rings with the Denver Broncos in 1998 and 1999.
