James Robert "Bob" Kalsu (April 13, 1945–July 21, 1970) was an All-American tackle at the University of Oklahoma and an eighth-round draft pick by the Buffalo Bills of the American Football League in 1968. Kalsu was a starting guard in 1968. He played the entire season and was the Bills' team rookie-of-the-year. Following the 1968 season, to satisfy his Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) obligation, he entered the Army as a Second Lieutenant and arrived in Vietnam in November 1969 as part of the 101st Airborne Division. He was killed in action on July 21, 1970 when his unit came under enemy mortar fire at FSB Ripcord near the A Shau Valley.
Quote of the Day
"Being a champion is a lonely life. There are many many sacrifices and few rewards. How many have the fortitude, the drive, and will power to say no when they want to say yes? There are those times when friends and family are out drinking, while champions are at home sleeping. Everyone else is sleeping in and you're already training at the gym."
