While it is easy to mourn the loss of a friend, family member, colleague, or even our greatest sports hero, I often like to take time to remember and celebrate the life that was. Here, in this post, I present to you a collection of Deacon Jones Greatest Hits. (Youtube Videos are not mine)

Jones is best remembered as being a member of the famed and frightening “Fearsome Foursome” on the Rams defensive line. A master of the quarterback rush, Jones is also credited with coining the term “sack”. Jones died of natural causes Tuesday morning at the age of 74. He may be gone, but Jones’ presence will be forever felt in the NFL.

Jones touched the lives of many in the sports community. Here are some tweets from sportscasters and other athletes regarding the great defensive end.





Heros get remembered, but legends never die. Rest In Peace, Deacon Jones.
