More Than 1,000 Gather To Mourn Summerall
Former NFL broadcaster Pat Summerall was remembered yesterday as a “great and humble man” before “roughly 1,684 mourners gathered” at a Texas church. Among those in attendance were Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones, NFL Senior VP/PR Greg Aiello, formers Cowboys scouting dir Gil Brandt, former Arkansas AD Frank Broyles and former Vikings Owner Red McCombs. Summerall’s former broadcast partner John Madden said, “I got up this morning and I thought, ‘Pat, I need you,’ I couldn’t get the tie straightened, a button buttoned. It was the same old thing” (FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 4/21).
