Al Jamison, one of the original Houston Oilers, passed away on Saturday, according to his family. He was 83.
Jamison, an offensive tackle, played three seasons with the Oilers in the AFL from 1960-62. During that time he started all 42 games, making two AFL All-Star teams and helping Houston win back-to-back league championships.
Unfortunately, a serious back injury halted Jamison’s career when he was just 25 years old. He would go on to have a stint as a sports talk radio personality in Houston in addition to founding a construction equipment business.
Jamison also served 12 years as a Colorado County Judge.
