There had been previous reports of his death but those were premature. Sadly, this one is official. :(

RIP

2. RIP Lee Roy
I was in the stands for every home game the Selmon brothers played at OU.

Great family.

Too soon...

3. Sorry to hear that
I remember when he was playing for OU. Best I remember there were three Selmon brothers who played for OU, memory fails me as to their names though.

RIP Lee Roy you were one of the best.

7. Leroy and Dewey were the twins.
Luscious was the older brother. Football and civic gems all of them!
