We lost one of the greatest football players in UND history early this AM.  Jim Leclair, former All-American linebacker, and Pro Bowl LB for the Cincinnati Bengals died of complications of CTE. Please keep Jim’s wife Betty, kids and other family members including brother Marty (who also played LB at UND) in our thoughts and prayers. 

Will do.  So sorry to hear that.

Great guy. Legend. I had heard things weren’t going well for him. Really sucks, he was very humble and nice when he talked to our team.

Very sad, before my time, but my oldest brother spoke of him.  I think they stayed in the same dorm.  My condolences to family and friends.

He was the mayor of Mayville but had to give it up for health reasons.  Also, tried to start a corporate type dairy farm near there, but some roadblocks were always thrown in.  He was very interested in expanding opportunities for his community,,
