NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Art Demmas, a longtime NFL official who worked four Super Bowls, has died. He was 82.
Jim Myers, Demmas' son-in-law, confirmed Sunday that Demmas died Saturday at Alive Hospice in Nashville.
Demmas was a pro football official from 1967-96. Myers says Demmas started in the American Football League and moved to the NFL after the AFL-NFL merger.
Demmas played tackle at Vanderbilt from 1952-53 and 1955-56. His 1955 Vanderbilt team beat Auburn in the Gator Bowl, the Commodores' first bowl appearance.
