Vencie Leonard Glenn (born October 26, 1964) is a former American football safety in the National Football League. He was drafted by the New England Patriots in the second round of the 1986 NFL Draft. He starred in college football at Indiana State. He was a two-year starter at Kennedy High in Silver Spring, Maryland.
Glenn had a stellar career at Indiana State; a two-time All-Conference safety, he was awarded the 1985 Missouri Valley Conference "Player of the Year (Defense)" and was named All-American by the AFCA. A ball-hawking safety, he still holds the ISU record for career interceptions (17), notching 2 vs. #6 Eastern Illinois in the 1983 playoffs.
In 1984, he was 4th in the Missouri Valley Conference in Interceptions (6) and 2nd in Interception Return Yardage (126).
Glenn intercepted 35 passes during his career; he ranks #25 on the San Diego Chargers career interceptions list (12 INTs); he is currently tied at #18 (14 INTs) on the Minnesota Vikings career interceptions list. Glenn is the record holder for longest interception return in Chargers history, after scoring on a 103-yard return against the Denver Broncos in 1987. This return is the third-longest in NFL history; it was the longest ever at the time until Ed Reed broke the record in 2004 and again in 2008.
He led the NFL in 'Interception Return Yardage' in 1987 with 166 yards.
