Many WFNY readers won’t remember the name Ricky Feacher, but before Jerry Rice was the big name WR from Mississippi Valley State, there was Ricky Feacher. Feacher played for the Browns during the late 70′s and early 80′s. He was part of the Kardiac Kids season that ended on Brian Sipe’s interception throw on the infamous Red Right 88 play against the Raiders. And now it appears Feacher is facing several charges stemming from an arrest this past week- Report: Former #Browns receiver Ricky Feacher arrested on drug charges bit.ly/1771k4O — Tom Reed (@treedPD) April 14, 2013 “Ricky Feacher, 59, of Crystal River, was charged with fleeing or eluding law enforcement, possession of a controlled substance, possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, with a total bond of $11,000. Feacher is a 1972 graduate of Hernando High School who was inducted into the school’s Sports Hall of Fame in 2011. Last year, Feacher was an assistant football coach at Weeki Wachee High School. WWHS athletic director and head football coach Mark Lee said he was aware of Feacher’s arrest. A spokeswoman in the district’s human resources department said Feacher had recently been hired on as a paraprofessional at Eastside Elementary, and that Wednesday would have been his first day. Instead, effective Wednesday, the district terminated Feacher’s employment with the district.” [Reinig/Hernando Today] Feacher was never the ‘featured’ wide out in the Browns offense, rather a possession receiver. His football career ended in 1984. He caught 15 touchdown passes for the Browns. [See also: Draft Day movie to have casting call in Cleveland]
