Sad news to report. Less than a week after being nominated for the Black College Football Hall of Fame, former Pittsburgh Steeler L.C. Greenwood died on Sunday. The former UAPB star was a part of the famed “Steel Curtain Defense” that helped Pittsburgh to four Superbowls in the 1970s. He was 67 years old.

// Greenwood was drafted in the tenth round of the 1971 NFL Draft. While he wasn’t as recognized or revered as teammate Mean Joe Greene, Greeenwood was an important piece of the Steelers dynasty. Since his 1981 retirement, he’s recieved several honors, including being named to the Superbowl Silver Anniversary team and the Steelers All-Time team. He’s also been a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
