Roman Gabriel dies at the age of 83

Roman Gabriel, the first Filipino-American quarterback and an NFL star, dies at the age of 83.

Roman Gabriel was the Los Angeles Rams' second-round selection in 1962 because of his size and throwing strength. With 154 touchdown passes, he still maintains the team record for the Rams, despite playing in a time when players were expected to battle it out on the ground.

Gabriel passed away on Saturday. He was the first Filipino-American quarterback in the NFL and the 1969 MVP. He was eighty-three.

Roman Gabriel III, his son, posted a social media announcement of his father's passing, stating that he passed away quietly at home from natural causes.

"I am retired with heart problems and arthritis but happy," the elder Gabriel stated in an interview with the Los Angeles Times in 2021. He claimed to divide his time between Little River, South Carolina, and Wilmington, North Carolina.

The NFL community pays Gabriel tribute.

The Rams posted a statement on X, now known as Twitter, saying, "We mourn the loss of Rams legend and football pioneer, Roman Gabriel."

In 1989, Gabriel, a North Carolina State athlete and two-time Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year, was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.

At 235 pounds and 6 feet 5 inches, he was large for a quarterback in that age. He was reportedly called "a big telephone pole" by Green Bay coach Vince Lombardi, the Los Angeles Times reports.

After the Rams acquired John Hadl, Gabriel played for the Philadelphia Eagles for five years before being traded to the Rams for another season.

Gabriel guided the Rams to two division titles and a 41-14-4 record from 1967 to 1970, but he never made it to the postseason. After throwing for 2,549 yards with 24 touchdown passes and five rushing scores, he was chosen as the 1969 MVP.

After the 1970 season, Allen moved to Washington, and in 1973, Gabriel was traded to the Eagles. In an effort to help the Eagles' offense get back on track, he led the league in touchdown passes with 23 and yards gained, earning him the title of NFL comeback player of the year.

Gabriel temporarily called NFL games for CBS after retirement.

He began coaching, serving as head coach at Cal Poly Pomona, the USFL's Boston Breakers, and the World League of American Football's Raleigh-Durham.

Gabriel has tried his hand at acting. Among his filmography were the 1968 film "Skidoo," starring Jackie Gleason, and the 1969 film "The Undefeated," starring John Wayne and Rock Hudson. He had appearances on television programs like Wonder Woman, Gilligan's Island, Perry Mason, and Ironside. Additionally, he accompanied Bob Hope on a USO Vietnam tour.
