from the News and Observer in Raleigh:

Willie Burden, a football star at N.C. State and a member of the Canadian Football League Hall of Fame, died Friday in Atlanta. He was 64.

Burden, a Raleigh native, was the ACC player of the year in 1973, when the Wolfpack won the ACC championship. He was the first Wolfpack player to rush for more than 1,000 yards in a season and set the school’s single-game rushing record with 198 yards against Ken State in 1971 — a mark eclipsed by Ted Brown in 1975.

The 1973 Pack had Burden, Young, Stan Fritts and Roland Hooks — Young, Fritts and Hooks played in the NFL.

Funeral plans are pending.
