RIP Dr. Death: Skip Thomas Dies

Alonzo “Skip” Thomas known best by his nickname Doctor Death passed away from a heart attack today. He was 61.

Thomas had back-to-back six interception seasons in 1974 and 1975 and his fierce tackling earned him his nickname. He had 17 career interceptions and his career was entirely with the Oakland Raiders.

My prayers go out to his family and friends.

  • @BeauxJaxson Partly the result of high school and college football teams not emulating the NFL as it did 20+ years ago. Partly luck.
