Sam Huff was once one of the most publicized football players of his time.  Huff played college football at West Virginia University where he earned All-American honors.  He began his professional career with the New York Giants where they enjoyed great success.  Huff made his defensive presence felt when he led the Giants to an NFL Championship in 1956. 

Huff was just as popular off the field as he was on.  In 1959, Huff was featured on the cover of Time Magazine and CBS even made a television special about Huff titled, "The Violent World of Sam Huff." 

While with the Giants, Huff was named Top NFL Linebacker in 1959, he was named to four consecutive Pro Bowls, and won a spot on the All-NFL team three times.  In 1964, Huff was traded to the Washington Redskins but retired after four seasons with them and one Pro-Bowl later. 

After retirement, Sam went into the broadcast booth where he has spent the last three decades announcing for the Redskins.  In 1999, he was ranked #76 on the Sporting News list of 100 Greatest Football Players.

Huff added a true love for the game and a unique ability to diagnose and disrupt the opponents' plays. Sam was best known for his hand-to-hand combat near the scrimmage line and for his duels with the likes of Jim Brown and Jim Taylor but he was also adept at pass defense.

In spite of his abundant talents, fate had to intervene several times to keep him out of the West Virginia coal mines. When Sam was a junior at Farmington High School, the West Virginia University coach came to town to look at a hot prospect but wound up recruiting Sam instead.

At the end of Huff's college career, Giants scout Al DeRogatis came to look at an All-America guard named Bruce Bosley. "Bosley is great," DeRogatis wired back, "but there's another guard here who will be even greater. His name is Sam Huff." Huff was a third-round draft pick in 1956 but, once in camp, things turned sour. Coach Jim Lee Howell agreed that Sam was a quality athlete but admitted he didn't know where to play him. Discouraged, Sam left camp and headed for the airport. There he was intercepted by assistant coach Vince Lombardi who lectured him on the merits of guts and determination and coaxed him back to camp.

Shortly after Sam's return, fate stepped in a final time. Ray Beck, the regular middle linebacker, was injured and Huff, in the emergency, got a chance to fill in. He did the job so well that Beck retired and Sam never had to worry about a regular football job " or the coal mine " again.
