55 - NFL LA Rams Legend Jack Snow (Throwback)
Welcome to a new episode of the Roman Gabriel Show. It's a throwback edition, I'll take you back to 1995 and a conversation with NFL Legendary Los Angeles Rams Wide Receiver Jack Snow. He was the favorite target of Quarterback Roman Gabriel, and one of my favorite Rams. My childhood rowing up always around the team, I remember attending many Rams youth football camps. Instead of going with my dad to be a quarterback, I followed Jack because I always admired his being on the end of the long bomb, leaping and diving to make the great catch. I wanted to be him ! He produced many great memories at the Coliseum thrilling Rams fans everywhere !
Snow was Drafted # 1 from Notre Dame, he enjoyed an illustrious career exclusively with the Rams from 1965-1975. In 1967, his breakout year averaging a career-high 26.3 yards per reception and scored eight touchdowns on his 28 receptions. He was named to the NFL Pro Bowl. Snow gained a reputation for catching the long ball from quarterback Roman Gabriel. He had a reputation of never being caught from behind, and willing to venture over the middle to make the tough physical catches. He possessed sure hands, and always came to play in the big games. He finished his professional career with 340 receptions and 45 touchdowns; his 6012 career receiving yards ranked 30th in NFL history.
After his playing career , he became the Rams Wide Receiver Coach in 1992, he went on to make a name for himself as the Rams Color analyst in LA all the way to St Louis. We lost Jack in 2005 when he developed a staph infection and died at age 62 as a result of complications. Come back with me to 1995 and my conversation with # 84, the White and Blue, Rams receiving great Jack Snow.
