George was like a big brother to me while I was in my early teens. We played many games of all different sports while he was living in San Francisco & visting Arizona. He was a big kid at heart....always asking "come on, one more game Matt" I miss ya George....RIP

I remeber him as a kid watching the Jets on TV. Curt Gowdy was always the announcer, I think. He caught everything thrown his way.He was a great one. Hall of Famer if he would have kept playing. I admire him for taking a stand on player treatment and walking away in his prime. God Bless.

As a boy growing up in a blue collar "NY Giants" town, I idolized the late 60's - early 70's NY Jets. Mr Sauer was one of my football heros. Whenever I went out for a pass in our street football games, I was "George Sauer". My friends never understood why I wanted to be "that AFL guy". I knew why. Not the fastest player, but cerebral, precise, and reliable. That's the player I wanted to be. Shocked me when he walked away from the game in 1970. At the time, didn't understand, now . . I do. Football is a brutal game that demands a gruesome price from the players. George saw that, and unfortunately may have paid that price in later life. My sincere condolences to his family, friends, and former teammates.

George also was a member of the national champion Texas Longhorns in 1963. I cherished your football card when I was a kid. Thank you George and Hook 'em Horns!
