Rob Lytle lived just about every little boy’s dream. He scored a touchdown in a Super Bowl. It was in that moment in Super Bowl XII that he forever became a part of NFL history. That moment will live forever, but it is only a small moment in the life of the running back and father. The legendary football player passed away yesterday at the age of a heart attack.
During his lifetime Rob Lytle garnered a list of achievements and accolades that every little football player dreams of. On the football field, Lytle was an unstoppable force, an All-American athlete Lytle grabbed the third place spot in the 1976 Heisman trophy race. Drafted by the Denver Broncos, Rob Lytle spent seven seasons playing for the team that would ultimately take him to the Super Bowl. In his rookie season, he scored the only touchdown for the team during their Super Bowl game.
He is survived by his wife Tracy Lytle, son Kelly Lytle, daughter Erin Lytle Tober,granddaughter Audrey and father William Lytle.
Our deepest condolences go out to the family and friends of Rob Lytle.
