    RIP Former Steeler Pat Brady

    Pat Brady (b. 1926 d. July 14, 2009) was an American football player who was a quarterback and punter for the University of Nevada, Reno and later for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League.

    Brady attended Nevada Reno from 1948 until 1952, first as a quarterback and then as a punter. On October 28, 1950 against Loyola Marymount, Brady had a punt of 99 yards, the longest possible under the rules, a record that cannot be broken and has never been tied.

    After spending the 1951 season in the Canadian Football League, Brady played for the Steelers during the 1952, 1953, and 1954 seasons, leading the league in punting in 1953 and 1954 and averaging 44.5 yards for his three years. A torn Achilles tendon during the 1955 pre-season ended his career.

    After football, Brady moved back to Reno and worked in the printing industry. In 1971, he was appointed the offical State Printer by Governor Mike O'Callaghan. Brady was a part-owner of Reno's Bonanza Casino for many years, and was also on the Nevada Boxing Commission.

    Brady was inducted into the Nevada Hall of Fame in 1979. He was also named to the Steelers 50th Anniversary team in 1982 and again to the 75th anniversary Legends team in 2007.

    Brady died on July 14, 2009 in Reno, Nevada after a long battle with lymphoma
