People who know me know I don’t keep up with football, but I know who Reggie White is and I like him. Our prayers go out to his family.
Reggie White, a fearsome defensive end for the Philadelphia Eagles and Green Bay Packers who was one of the great players in NFL history, died Sunday, his wife said. He was 43.
The cause of death was not immediately known.
“Today our beloved husband, father and friend passed away,” White’s wife, Sara, said in a statement through a family pastor. “His family appreciates your thoughts and prayers as we mourn the loss of Reggie White. We want to thank you in advance for honoring our privacy.”
