Muda69 Posted November 3, 2022 Share Posted November 3, 2022 Ray Guy dies at 72: Raiders legend, first punter inducted into Pro Football Hall of Fame, passes away: https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/ray-guy-dies-at-72-raiders-legend-first-punter-inducted-into-pro-football-hall-of-fame-passes-away/ Quote Ray Guy, widely regarded as the greatest punter in NFL history, passed away Thursday morning following a lengthy illness, his alma mater, Southern Miss, announced. He was 72 years old. A member of both the College and Pro Football Hall of Fame, Guy became the first punter inducted into Canton, Ohio, when he was enshrined in 2014. "Fittingly, much was written when Ray Guy was enshrined in Canton about how his election as the first true punter created a "full roster" of players in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Too often overlooked, however, was the man behind his powerful right leg," Hall of Fame president Jim Porter said in a statement. "Ray was a warm, humble Southern gentleman who represented the game, the Raiders organization and the Hall of Fame with dignity and class at all times. "A truly gifted athlete, he could have been a star in Major League Baseball or pro basketball. Fans of the NFL thank Ray for choosing to focus on football." .... A sad day. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
