RIP Larry

One of the strongest men to play football

His feats of strength in the Cowboys' weight room were legendary, once bench-pressing 700 pounds. His speed for his frame astounded many, including chasing down New Orleans Saints linebacker Darion Conner on an interception return in 1994

52! Makes you wonder if there was some underlying health issue or if it was caused by his playing time. That is way too young.

two professions seem to knock 15 years off of your life expectancy:

rock and roll
NFL player

I think it's size based. So much strain on the heart
