Keith Loneker Sr., who played offensive tackle for the Kansas football team from 1989-92 before establishing careers in the NFL and with film, has died, KU Athletics officials confirmed. He was 46.

Loneker, who was a starter for the 1992 KU team that finished 8-4 and won the Aloha Bowl, spent three seasons in the NFL after going undrafted, playing 19 games with the Los Angeles/St. Louis Rams from 1993-95 with five starts.

The 6-foot-4 Loneker later received notoriety for his acting career, which included roles in “Out of Sight,” “Superbad” and “Leatherheads.”

Loneker’s son, Keith Jr., is a junior linebacker on the KU football team. Keith Jr. posted on his Instagram page in December that his father had been diagnosed with cancer the previous month.

Keith Sr., who was coached by Glen Mason, earned all-Big Eight honors in his final season with the Jayhawks.
