Mike Stratton's famous hit on San Diego Chargers running back Keith Lincoln that broke three of his ribs. The Bills won the 1964 AFL Championship Game 20-7 over the Chargers.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Mike Stratton.

Mike Stratton - Wikipedia

I had the pleasure of getting to meet Mike.

A truly honorable and humble man.
I knew Mike very well. We played on the same Knox City basketball team that was undefeated when we were at Tennessee. His nit-name was Li'l Abner and was a very good basketball player as well as an All Pro Linebacker. After he moved back to Tellico Plains, he held an annual golf tournament which was played at the Links at Kahite in Vonore Tn. to raise money for the Tellico Plains high School. He was a real asset to his family, The University of Tennessee, his home town and everyone who knew him. He will missed by everyone. RIP.
