Former NFL lineman Bud McFadin dies at 77

VICTORIA, Texas (Feb. 15, 2006) -- Bud McFadin, a five-time Pro Bowl lineman who spent 11 years in the NFL, died at 77.

He died Feb. 13 in a hospital in Victoria, where he had lived since 1980.

McFadin was an All-American guard in 1950 for Texas. The next year he was drafted in the first round by the Los Angeles Rams, where he starred for five seasons. He played six seasons in the AFL with the Denver Broncos and Houston Oilers.

McFadin became the Oilers' defensive line coach in 1966-70. He left football to concentrate on ranching in his native West Texas until he moved to Victoria 10 years later. He sold oil field equipment until his retirement last year. McFadin was inducted into the Longhorn Hall of Honor in 1973.

His funeral is Feb. 16 outside Victoria, with burial in Colorado City.

Survivors include wife Patsy, daughters Paige Holloway and Barbara Collins and two sons, the Rev. Marcus McFadin and Lewis P. McFadin Jr.
