Dick Butkus


The Chicago Bears announced Thursday that Dick Butkus, arguably the fiercest Monster of the Midway, has died at age 80. Butkus became a Bears legend and Pro Football Hall of Famer in his nine-year career in 1965. The middle linebacker was a vicious tackler whose intimidating presence put some players on their heels before they snapped the ball. In a statement released through the Bears, Butkus’ family said he “died peacefully in his sleep overnight” at his home in Malibu, California.

Meanwhile, four days after squandering a three-touchdown lead to mark their 14th straight loss, the Chicago Bears ended the longest losing streak in franchise history with a 40-20 walloping of the Washington Commanders Thursday night.

AUSTIN, TX — The State Executive Committee of the University Interscholastic League met Wednesday to hand down decisions on student-athlete eligibility. They did not grant Rockwall High School and Canyon High School student-athletes varsity eligibility. After hearing testimony from all parties, the board determined that these students did change schools for athletic purposes.
