Danny Villanueva, a Placekicker for the Rams and Cowboys in the mid 1960s, and most certainly one of the very few New Mexico State Aggies to play in the NFL, has died at 77 after suffering a stroke earlier this week. He was also a pioneer of Spanish speaking NFL coverage after his playing days.

I can help here. The Heismann Trophy is awarded to the 'best college football player' each year. Bear Bryant and the Alabama football program being one of the best, it is therefore a bit of an oddity that he only coached 1 winner of the Heismann, basically, considering all the talent he coached, including Joe Nameth et al. That's why they made a point of saying that.

Denver Bronco (former) LB Adrian Robinson dead at 25, reasons not reported. Sounds like suicide or overdose--I almost put this entry there.

Coroner's Office in Phily confirming that he hung himself Saturday. Shoulda posted in suicide thread as per my intuition.
