Ike Lassiter (born November 15, 1940 in Wilson, North Carolina) is a former American college and professional football defensive lineman. He is an alumnus of St. Augustine's College in Raleigh, North Carolina, where he received a Bachelor's Degree in physical education. Lassiter played professionally for the American Football League's Denver Broncos and the AFL's Oakland Raiders, where he was an AFL All-Star in 1966. He played as the starting left defensive end in Super Bowl II for the 1967 Raiders. In the 1967 regular season on a Raiders team with a won-lost record of 13-1, he was one of the main pass-rushers of a front four including Dan Birdwell, Tom Keating (American football), and Ben Davidson with a combined league-leading total of 67 sacks and 665 yards lost,[1] the latter an all-time record, the all-time record for sacks being 72, done in a 16-game season, the Raiders leading the league in sacks from 1966 to 1968, an all-time record.[2]

He ended his NFL career with the Boston Patriots/New England Patriots in 1970 and 1971. Lassiter was traded to the Washington Redskins in 1972, but did not make the team. He sat out the next two seasons, but played for the Jacksonville Sharks in 1974 in the World Football LEague. He retired to Oakland, California, where he currently lives.
