Legendary LSU, NFL QB YA Tittle dies at 90

Legendary LSU, NFL QB YA Tittle dies at 90”

Four-time LSU Football letterwinner, Professional Football Hall of Famer and 1963 NFL MVP Yelberton "Y.A". Under coach Bernie Moore, LSU had employed a single-wing attack, but that called for a tailback who could run and pass. Tittle was strictly a passer, and that turned the Tigers into a T-formation team with a modern concept of the quarterback position. He became a star for LSU before he was selected with the sixth overall pick of the 1948 draft by the Detroit Lions. The Giants retired his No. 14 immediately after his career ended and became a charter member of the New York Giants Ring of Honor in 2010.

Tittle holds the National Football League record for touchdowns in a game (seven), which has been tied multiple times.

The picture came after a play where Tittle was hit so hard that he suffered a concussion and a cracked sternum. Tittle spent 10 seasons with the 49ers and earned four Pro Bowl selections, wleading the league in touchdown passes in 1955. Tittle told ESPN.com as of late that he wasn't a colossal enthusiast of the photograph.
