A tragedy has just struck the NFL community. A former Super Bowl champion has just passed away after suffering a heart attack while with his family, according to reports.
Nate Hobgood-Chittick died on Saturday at the age of 42. He is best known for playing on the St. Louis Ram’s Super Bowl Championship team. One of the most famous Super Bowl finished of all time came when the Ram’s defense held the Tennessee Titans just feet from the end zone to secure the win in Super Bowl XXXIV.
“He worked his way to being a part of that team,” Head Coach Dick Vermeil said. “He was a great guy to have on that team.”
Nate played college football at the University of North Carolina. He played in four different bowl games for UNC and graduated in 1998. He was also named to the Dean’s List and the Academic Honors Roll for the ACC.
“During his NFL career, he played for the St. Louis Rams, San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs. He was a member of the St. Louis Rams team that won Super Bowl XXXIV. He also was a member of the Indianapolis Colts and the New York Giants,” according to reports.
His 43rd birthday was coming up on November 30th. Nate was currently living in southern California and working as a financial adviser.
