GREEK PLAYERS - Other than football

Recommended Posts

Another Greek who played in the NFL

Damon G. (The Greek) Tassos. Played guard at Texas A & M and then played five years in the NFL between 1946-1950 for Green Bay for two years and for Detroit for the remaining three years. From San Antonio. Owned a very successful art gallery there and was generous to the Greek church and community. Died in 2001 from ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). One of three Greek-Americans in the NFL at that time. The other two were John Mellekas of the Bears and Pete Pihos of the Eagles. Pihos is in the college and pro football halls of fame.
