Alex Karras

As I learned more about football whilst in high school and college, I decided to read biographies from pretty much as many players as I could find.

Many of them were similar in tone and not discernable between one and another.

But, one of my personal favorites - and as it happens quite memorable books -  was _Even Big Guys Cry_ by Alex Karras.

When I heard he was sick last week, I was thinking about this glimpse into his personal and professional life and remembered fondly reading it.

And when I heard he passed away today, I wanted to pay my respects and suggest that if you have an opportunity, you read it.
