Gary Jeter, Class of 1973
Cathedral Latin graduate and football star Gary Jeter died within the past 24 hours. An exact time and cause of death is yet unknown. Jeter was 61.
Jeter was one of the greatest high school football players in the country when he graduated in 1973. He was Ohio’s high school lineman of the year and a national All-American. Jeter ranked No. 2 on The Plain Dealer’s Top 50 High School Football Players from 1963-2013.
In high school Jeter was nearly impossible to block, despite getting double- and triple-teamed.
He played at USC and started as a freshman. The Trojans won the national title in 1974. He was fifth overall selection in the draft and played 13 years in the NFL with the New York Giants and Los Angeles Rams.
Jeter is survived by four daughters. He lived in Plainsboro, New Jersey. Our hearts and prayers go out to the Jeter family. May he rest in peace.
