Jack Tatum, the fearsome former defensive back of the Oakland Raiders known as "The Assassin" for his aggressive and hard hitting play, returns today to North Jersey to attend the traditional Thanksgiving Day game between his Alma mater - Passaic High School and rival Clifton High. Tatum will be honored by having his #32 retired by Passaic High during a pre-game ceremony at Passaic's Boverini Stadium. Tatum, a 3 time Pro Bowl selection with the Raiders, is arguably one of the best football players to come out of North Jersey. Sometimes accused of "dirty play" - most notably his hit on New England Patriots player Darryl Stingley in 1978 which left the wide receiver paralyzed - no one ever questioned Tatum's ability or dedication to playing the game.
So today, Passaic High School celebrates one of it's favorite sons.
Happy Thanksgiving to all.....
