Former Canadian Football League player passes away

The captain of the first Boston Patriots team has died.
Tony Sardisco was 73. His daughter said he died over the weekend after suffering a massive heart attack in his home in Shrevesport, La.
The former Tulane star played middle linebacker for the Patriots in their inaugural year of 1960 and was considered the leader of the team's defense. He later played guard before retiring in 1962.
Sardisco also played for the San Francisco 49ers and Washington Redskins of the NFL and the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League. After his playing days, he was an assistant coach for several college and pro teams and served as president of the National Football Foundation.
