Ex-Steelers cornerback dead at 54

SODDY-DAISY, Tenn. (AP) -- Ray Oldham, a 10-year NFL cornerback who won a Super Bowl ring with the 1978 Pittsburgh Steelers, has died. He was 54.

Oldham died Saturday while training for a bicycle ride. Heritage Funeral Home had no other details on his death.

He went to Middle Tennessee State from 1969 through 1972 and was a runner-up to Jim Youngblood for Ohio Valley Conference defensive player of the year in 1972. His league record for longest interception return still stands, a 100-yard return against Chattanooga in 1970.

Oldham was drafted by the Baltimore Colts in 1973 in the eighth round, and he played with the Colts through 1977. He played only one season in Pittsburgh, when the Steelers won their third Super Bowl title in January 1979. He joined the New York Giants in 1979 and finished his career with three seasons with the Detroit Lions.

He finished with 14 career interceptions in the NFL, including two returned for touchdowns.

His funeral is scheduled for Wednesday at the funeral home. Oldham is survived by his wife and two children.

My sympathy to his family. I'll keep them in my prayers.

Really don`t recall to much about him. But 54 is way to young to pass away.

may God Bless, and R.I.P.
