College football lost a great man today when Johnny Lattner passed away at age 83. I had the privilege of meeting Johnny Lattner in 2007 at the Heisman Winner’s Association dinner in Austin Texas. I attended three of those dinners (2007, 2008, and 2009) and I was able to visit with Lattner each time. He was a great guy and was always a pleasure to visit with.
He will be missed.
Here is a Chicago Tribune article about Johnny Lattner, giving a short overview of his life, family, and playing career. I highly recommend it.
