Rick Egloff (born c. 1945) was a football player in the Canadian Football League.

A graduate of Mullen High School in Denver, Colorado,[1] Egloff played college football at the University of Wyoming in Laramie, where he starred as a quarterback from 1964 to 1966. In his senior season in 1966, he led the Cowboys to a conference title and a 28–20 victory over Florida State in the Sun Bowl; he ran and passed for a touchdown that game,[2] and Wyoming finished with a 10–1 record.[3][4][5]

In the 1967 NFL/AFL Draft, Egloff was selected by the Oakland Raiders of the American Football League in the sixth round (155th overall), then traded to the Denver Broncos in April 1968,[6] but did not play with either team. In 1968, he played four games with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League.[7]

He now resides in the foothills of Colorado where he runs an Italian restaurant.[8]
