John Glenn Bruhin (born December 9, 1964) is a former American football guard who played four seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League. Bruhin was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the fourth round of the 1988 NFL Draft. He played college football at the University of Tennessee and high school football at Powell High School in Powell, Tennessee.[1][2]

After redshirting in 1983 at Tennessee, Bruhin spent most of the 1984 season as a reserve behind All-American Bill Mayo.[3][4] By the 1985 season, he was a starter on a line that featured future NFL players Bruce Wilkerson, Harry Galbreath, and David Douglas,[5] and delivered a "stellar blocking performance" in the 1986 Sugar Bowl.[6] In spite of a knee injury,[7] he appeared in 11 games in 1986, and played in all 12 games in 1987.[3]

Bruhin appeared in all sixteen games for Tampa Bay during his rookie season in 1988. He had worked his way into the starting lineup by 1989, but suffered a knee injury in the seventh game of the season, and missed several games.[8] He started several games for the Bucs during the 1990 season, alternating at left guard with Tom McHale.[9] He continued alternating the starting spot with right guard Ian Beckles and Tom McHale during the 1991 season.[10] Bruhin signed with the Philadelphia Eagles in March 1992,[11] but was waived just before the start of the season.[12]
