Former NFL Pro Bowler and Chicago/St. Louis Cardinals standout Billy Stacy has reportedly died at the age of 83.
Stacy, who attended Mississippi State University, reportedly died Tuesday, according to an announcement made by the university Wednesday. Stacy played five seasons for the Cardinals, who now play in Arizona, earning a Pro Bowl selection in 1962. He was the first player to score touchdowns on a reception, interception, and fumble recovery until Houston Texans star J.J. Watt duplicated the feat in 2014.
Stacey later went on to be the mayor of Starkville, Mississippi, from 1985 to 1989.
