La'Roi Glover (born July 4, 1974 in San Diego, California) is an American NFL defensive tackle, currently playing for the Dallas Cowboys. He attended San Diego State, and was drafted by the Oakland Raiders with the 34th pick in the 5th round of the 1996 NFL draft.
Glover played a backup role that year for the Raiders, before being released and signed in 1997 by the New Orleans Saints, for whom he played as a starter until 2002, when he signed with the Cowboys. He is considered one of the better players at his position in the league, and has been elected to the Pro Bowl three times.
In August 1999, La’Roi Glover announced the establishment of The La’Roi Glover Foundation, which provides scholarships to students in San Diego, supports needy families, and otherwise aids organisations that assist children. The Foundation annually provides two scholarships to graduates of Point Loma High School , where Glover graduated.
