Statement from Atlanta City Council Member Michael Julian Bond on the passing of
NFL Legend Tommy Nobis

 

Today we loss not only a great NFL legend but an even greater man, Tommy Nobis. Our condolences go out not only to his immediate family but to all the many fans he brought joy to due to his many exploits on the grid iron. I was a fan of his as a small child and I am very thankful that I got the chance to relay that to him when we honored Claude Humphry two years ago. 

“I am grateful that I got the chance to say to him in person how much I admired him. This is a loss not only for the Nobis family, the Falcons Family and the entire NFL, but because of the type of man he was on and off the field, this is a loss for Atlanta and the whole country.”      Atlanta City Council Member Michael Julian Bond
