The Steelers lost one of their greatest players ever on Thursday when Bullet Bill Dudley passed away in his home state of Virginia after suffering a massive stroke at the age of 88. In lieu of my around the web feature today, I want to inundate you with several links on Dudley.
In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations be made to the Bill Dudley Scholarship Foundation. http://billdudleyscholarship.com/
