Earl Douthitt, a former Hawkeye football player, was killed on Tuesday while raking leaves.

Douthitt was struck by a van while doing yard work in Youngstown, Ohio, as initially reported by the Youngstown News. He was 61.

Douthitt, a first-team all-Big Ten selection in 1974, is Iowa’s single-season and career record-holder for kickoff returns and kickoff-return yardage. A defensive back, Douthitt was a captain of the 1974 Iowa football team. He later played for the Chicago Bears.
