It is a sad day for NFL fans, especially those close to the Green Bay Packers team. According to reports, a former running back has passed away.

MacArthur Lane has taken his final breath. He was 77 years old. Our prayers at this time go out to his family and friends. May God's healing mercy comfort them in this difficult time.

According to reports, Lane played 11 seasons in an NFL uniform as a member of the St. Louis Cardinals, Green Bay Packers, and Kansas City Chiefs. His best season came in 1970 when he rushed for 977 yards while scoring 11 touchdowns on the season, resulting in him being named a Pro Bowler for the only time in his career.

Lane was known for his hard and tough running style. He preferred to run over his opponents rather than spin or juke around them.

He grew up in Oakland and attended Fremont High School as an all-city linebacker. He pursued his dreams of playing football by attending Utah State University. His terrific work ethic and unmatched talent helped him land the 13th overall spot in the 1968 NFL Draft.

"In his retirement days, MacArthur owned and managed a rental property as well as being active within his community through volunteer work. His memory will be carried on by his wife and two daughters," according to reports.
