Default Tommy 'Mr. Falcon' Nobis RIP

Lost one of the finest and toughest LB's to play and set a standard here in Atlanta. Rest in Peace Tommy!

I wore number 60 even when I played positions not designated for that number. He was a real man. Someone to look up to as a real hero in society.

Just an awesome guy. Got to have lunch with him at a Falcons Spring training event. He told some incredible stories. Still have the football he signed. 1966 First falcons drafted. One tough dude.

And he was a big man after football. His Tommy Nobis Foundation has helped a lot of folks over the years. If you have an old car you want to get rid of, considering donating it to his foundation.
