Lee Roy Selmon touched many lives during his time at the University of Oklahoma and in his many years playing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and working for the University of South Florida. It's only fitting that members of both communities will have a chance to pay their respects in dual funeral services.
The University of Oklahoma said Monday that there will be a public viewing Thursday at Exciting Central Baptist Church in Tampa and a funeral service Friday at Idlewild Baptist Church in Lutz, Fla. A funeral service also is set for Saturday at The First Southern Baptist Church in Oklahoma City.
Selmon remains the Tampa Bay all-time leader in sacks with 78 1/2, and posted 742 total tackles. His No. 63 was retired by the franchise in 1986, and he was inducted into the pro football Hall of Fame in 1995.
