Pete Lammons, a former All-Southwest Conference tight end for Texas and a key player on the New York Jets team that turned in the most historic Super Bowl upset ever, drowned Thursday during a bass fishing tournament near Brookeland. He was 77.

Lammons, an experienced angler, was fishing near the San Augustine park area on Sam Rayburn Reservoir when he fell from a boat and couldn’t recover as he tried to get back in the boat, a family member told the American-Statesman. He was fishing in the Toyota Series at Sam Rayburn, competing in his 57th tournament.

Lammons, who lived in Houston, will be remembered as a wonderful teammate and gregarious friend who had an active spirit and a large appetite for life. The family and Jody Krautz, Lammons’ longtime girl friend, are planning to hold a memorial in Houston honoring his life.
