Halfback

Perhaps the greatest player ever to don the Purple and Gold, he won the Heisman Trophy in 1959. He earned virtually every honor possible, including All-American accolades in 1958 and 1959. His 89-yard punt return in 1959 against Ole Miss is legendary, and he was considered almost as valuable on defense as he was on offense. He played professionally for Houston, Oakland and Kansas City.
