RIP: Ray Guy
03 Nov
Not in Hall of Fame

We lost one of the greatest Special Teams player in the history of the Game as Ray Guy, the former Raiders Punter, passed away at the age of 73.

Guy was turning heads at Southern Mississippi, and as good as he was, it was a surprise that the Oakland Raiders made him a First Round (23rd Overall) Pick in the 1973 Draft.  He immediately established himself as the premier Punter in the NFL, perfecting the art of Punting and field position.  Guy went to seven Pro Bowls, was a three-time First Team All-Pro, an All-Decade Team Selection, and he aided Oakland/Los Angeles win three Super Bowls.

Guy was finally inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2014, via the Seniors Committee.  He is also a member of the College Football Hall of Fame, having been inducted in 2004.

We here at would like to extend our condolences to the fans, friends and family of Ray Guy.
