Prayers and condolences go out to the Tubbs family.
Here is a statement from the university.
The University of Oklahoma was saddened to learn of the passing of Jerry Tubbs, who earned consensus football All-America honors in 1956.
Not only a great blocker, Tubbs established himself as one of the top pass defenders in the country with his three interceptions against Texas in 1955. During 1956, Tubbs was the first Sooner to receive the Walter Camp Award, given to the player of the year, and was also named Lineman of the Year by UPI.
