The younger brother of a former Cowboys quarterback tragically passed away this week and prayers are coming in.
Scott Pelluer, the brother of ex-Cowboys quarterback Steve Pelluer, died this week at the age of 64 following a cardiac arrest episode he suffered through.
“Dallas Cowboys 1981 draft pick linebacker Scott Pelluer died late Monday. He was 64,” Cowboys Country reported.
“Pelluer’s brother Steve, the former Cowboys quarterback, told the Seattle Times that Scott Pelluer was placed in a medically induced coma at a Seattle hospital following a cardiac arrest late last week.”
Prayers are pouring in for him.
Scott Pelluer was a star linebacker at Washington State starting in the 1977 season and lasting through the 1980 season before the Cowboys made him a fourth-round pick in the 1981 NFL Draft. The opportunity to team up with his brother unfortunately never came to pass as Steve joined Dallas in 1984, but Scott never suited up in a regular-season game for the Cowboys, as they opted to cut the linebacker coming out of training camp.
Pelluer also contributed on special teams for the team from 1981-86 before he would dive into coaching.
