    Very sad. There used to be a time in my life... if someone said NFL punter, Reggie Roby immediately came to mind.

    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    Yep, me too. At one time it was Ray Guy that came to mind, then later it was Reggie Roby. Odd habit that he had was that he always wore a watch on field.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    Incidentally he was a very good high school pitcher and was drafted by our beloved Cincinnati Reds.

    Not sure if thats in the article or not though.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Did anyone have a higher leg kick than good ol' Reg? That's terrible news.

    It's in this one.

    Roby played football and baseball at Waterloo East High School and was promising enough as a pitcher to get drafted by the Cincinnati Reds. But he was swayed by Hayden Fry's pitch to help in the rebuilding effort at Iowa and joined the Hawkeyes in 1979, Fry's first season.
