NFL | Death of Ray Guy, first kicker inducted into the Hall of Fame


(Hattiesburg) Ray Guy, the first kicker inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, died Thursday at the age of 72.

Posted at 1:10 p.m.

Southern Mississippi University, where Guy shone before becoming the first kicker in history to be selected in the first round of the NFL Draft, said he died after a long fight against disease. He was receiving treatment at a health facility in the Hattiesburg area.

Guy had been selected at the 23e rank by the Al Davis Raiders in 1973 and played his entire 14-season NFL career with that team. He was also retained on three occasions on the all-star team. In 2014, Guy became the first player in history to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame exclusively for his kicking skills.
