Remembering Sam

10/31/2007

Sam Dana, the oldest living NFL alum, died Monday at the age of 104.  Originally thought to be deceased, it was uncovered in 2003 that indeed Dana was the league’s oldest living player.  As such, the Pro Football Hall of Fame invited Dana to Canton as a special guest for the museum’s annual Senior Citizens Day celebration.  Here is a photo gallery from Dana’s visit to the Hall on September 24, 2003.  View gallery>>>
