 NEW YORK (AP) -Dick Lynch, who starred at cornerback for the New York Giants during their glory years in the late 1950s and early 1960s and was a longtime radio analyst for the team, has died. He was 72.
Lynch, who had been treated for leukemia, died Wednesday morning, family members said.
Lynch played in the NFL from 1958-1966 - his first season with Washington and the last eight with the Giants. He had 37 career interceptions, including nine each in 1961 in 1963. He had four returns for touchdowns, three in 1963.
He is perhaps best known for a 3-yard touchdown run in 1957 that gave Notre Dame a 7-0 win over Oklahoma, ending the Sooners 47-game winning streak.
After his playing days, he turned to radio and was the Giants color commentator from 1968 until this year.
Funeral services are planned for St. Patrick's Cathedral, either Saturday or Sunday.
