Guy Reese (September 22, 1939 – November 22, 2010) was a professional American football defensive tackle in the National Football League for the Dallas Cowboys, Baltimore Colts and Atlanta Falcons. He played college football at Southern Methodist University.
Reese attended South Oak Cliff High School, where he played as a two-way tackle. He accepted a football scholarship from Southern Methodist University. He became a starter at right tackle as a junior.
He opted to sign with the Cowboys and was tried at the offensive line. As a rookie, he was named the starter at left defensive tackle opposite John Meyers. He was part of a defensive line called the "Maverick Line", that had 3 rookies and a second-year player. He was named to the NFL All-Rookie team.
In 1964, he passed Billy Ray Smith Sr. on the depth chart. He started 12 out of 14 games at right defensive tackle, while playing alongside Fred Miller. In 1964, he was mainly a backup behind Smith Sr., starting 3 out of 13 games.
The Atlanta Falcons selected him from the Colts roster in the 1966 NFL Expansion Draft. He was named the starter at left defensive tackle in the franchise's inaugural season, but suffered a knee injury in the second game against the Philadelphia Eagles and was lost for the year. It turned out to be a career-ending injury that forced him to retire on May 17, 1967.
Reese was a real estate appraiser for over 30 years. He died of cancer on November 22, 2010.
