St. Louis, MO – Long-time Rams broadcaster and former Rams player Jack Snow died Monday night at the age of 62.

He had been in and out of the hospital for the past two months with a staph infection.

He was an analyst on the team's radio broadcasts, calling his last game November 20th.

Snow was drafted from Notre Dame and spent his entire 11 year playing career with the Los Angeles Rams.

His son is baseball Gold Glove first baseman J.T. Snow.

Snow was selected to the Pro Bowl in 1967 and still ranks among the team leaders in several receiving categories. He had 340 receptions for 6,012 yards - a 17.7-yard average - and 45 touchdowns in 150 career regular-season games for the Rams. In 1967, he averaged 26.3 yards on 28 receptions and scored eight TDs.

After an All-America career at Notre Dame, Snow was drafted eighth overall by the Minnesota Vikings in 1965 but soon traded to Los Angeles.

"This is a very sad time for all of us," Rams owner Georgia Frontiere said. "Jack was a special part of the Rams' family for many years.

"It's very painful when a loved one is taken from us, but fortunately we are left with so many exciting and beautiful memories that we shared with Jack on and off the field."
