Former NFL player Dick Woodard dies at 93

Former NFL player Dick Woodard dies at 93 Dick Woodard, an offensive lineman and linebacker who played five seasons of pro football, has died at the age of 93. Woodard was the great uncle of Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins, who confirmed the death on Twitter. “This morning my Uncle Dick Woodard went to be with the Lord at 93 years old,” Cousins wrote. “He played for the Redskins & Giants and was one of the oldest living NFL players. Played a big role in my love for the game from a very young age. We will miss you Uncle Dick!” Born in Britt, Iowa, in 1926, Woodard was an All-Big Nine player for the Iowa Hawkeyes, playing alongside his brother Ralph Woodard, who is Cousins’ grandfather.

Eisenberg played Nog on 40 episodes of "Deep Space Nine," which came as a surprise to him as he took the role without being told any details about his character or how long he would play it. Nog is the first member of the Ferengi, a greedy alien race always looking for a profit, to join Starfleet thanks to the recommendation of Captain Sisko.

Nog is one of several characters that played a running tradition in the series of previously antagonistic alien races becoming allies, with the cultural differences between them and other Starfleet members playing a role in several episodes. In the series finale of "Deep Space Nine," Nog's hard work in the Dominion War earned him a promotion to lieutenant.

After the series ended, he took several theatre roles as well as a guest appearance on an episode of "Star Trek: Voyager" before transitioning to a career in professional photography. In 2015, he returned to the "Star Trek" world in the fan film "Renegades" alongside fellow series alums Walter Koenig, who played Chekov in the original series, and Robert Picardo, who played the holographic Doctor in "Voyager."
