Chuck Muncie, arguably the greatest Cal Bear running back of the modern era, died this week of a heart attack at age 60. I saw Muncie score 5 TD’s against Stanford and he went on to a stellar pro career. He was a bigger version of Marshawn Lynch, and as fast and powerful. He played during the glory years of Cal football when Steve Bartowski was the overall No. 1 draft pick, Muncie was an overall No. 3, and Joe Roth would have been the first pick of the draft had he not died of cancer. Here is the ESPN obituary
of Muncie, a man who dedicated much of his life to helping at-risk youth and who provided thrills on the field that this Cal fan and others will never forget.
