As a young child, you were one of my first sports heroes. A class act all the way. Thanks for the great memories.

I saw a reel of Mr. Van Buren's work and just said, "Wow." He was a great athlete. My sincere sympathy to his family. Please find solace in God's word. Psalms 37:29

What a legacy. I never knew him, but wish I did. As a kid raised in Baton Rouge, I heard about him years after he played there... evidence that he was one of the greats, especially at LSU where they name streets after you and give you nicknames that lasts for decades. Steve was known as Wham Bam for his solid, hard hitting running style. There's also a Van Buren street not far from the LSU campus.

My condolences to his family.

Sympathy to his three daughters. My parents and I were going to the 1948 title game from Virginia but got only as far as Baltimore because of the snow. I recall listening to the 1949 championship game on the radio in Virginia. After moving back in 1950 to the Philly suburbs, I did see him play. He was the best. RIP, Steve.
