Default Jethro Pugh (1944-2015)

ESPN Article

Ex-Cowboy Jethro Pugh dead at 70

IRVING, Texas -- Jethro Pugh played alongside Hall of Famers Bob Lilly and Randy White in a long career as a defensive tackle for the Dallas Cowboys, which may explain why he was among the most unsung Super Bowl winners in the franchise's storied history.

Pugh, who played in the first four Super Bowls for Dallas and was part of a "Doomsday Defense" that won two of them, died Wednesday. He was 70.

The team said Pugh died of natural causes four days before the Cowboys were to play their first postseason game in Green Bay since the famous Ice Bowl in 1967. Pugh was blocked on Bart Starr's quarterback sneak for the game-winning touchdown in Dallas' 21-17 loss in the Ice Bowl that sent the Packers to the second Super Bowl.

article continues........

One of the greats, one of the underrated. Sad news tonight. I have a lot of memories from Jethro and those Cowboys. RIP.

That's a real bummer. He was my favorite player from the original Doomsday Defense. I think I liked his name because of Jethro Bodine from the Beverly Hillbillies. But what do you expect from a 7 and 8 year old?

Jethro didn't like the way Kilmer's helmet looked on him...

I actually played against Jethro Pugh in a charity basketball game many years ago in which I fouled him pretty hard. It was a game against retired Cowboy players and local radio, TV personalities and business people to benefit Boys Haven. The Cowboys eased up in the 2nd half so we can score a few points. Pugh faked me, got me up in the air and my forearm slammed against the top of his head when I went for the block.

I scored 6 points and had 1 assist in that game.
