One thing we try to cover extensively on Pro Sports extra is the passing of athletes in professional sports. While it is something that is never fun to do, we still feel it is important to report the news.
Unfortunately last month, one in particular slipped through the cracks and did not go reported. One of the oldest living members of the Philadelphia Eagles named Dick Steere passed away at the age of 94 on May 3rd. Steere was an offensive guard who played for the Philadelphia Eagles and Edmonton Eskimos. He played college football at Drake University
Aside from his time in the NFL with the Eagles, Steere was also a veteran of the US Navy and fought in World War II, and most notably participated in the landing in Nagasaki.
There has been a push in the past year for former Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks Randall Cunningham and Donovan McNabb to be enshrined in the NFL Hall of Fame together. The below YouTube video puts together some compelling points as to why this should happen. Take a look at the video below and see for yourself.
