Legendary LSU, NFL QB YA Tittle dies at 90

Hall of Fame quarterback Y.A. Tittle died Sunday at age 90, LSU announced.

Tittle attended LSU and was a first-round pick (No. 6 overall) in the 1948 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Colts.

Tittle only spent four seasons with the Giants at the back end of his career, but that didn't keep him from being viewed as a legend in the eyes of Big Blue fans. Tittle's passing total still stands as the 15th highest single-game total in National Football League history while his seven touchdowns are still tied as the top single-game performance by any quarterback in National Football League history. TIttle was a superstar quarterback whose pro career spanned 17 seasons with the Baltimore Colts, San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants.




Tittle lettered from 1944-47 and led LSU to victory in the 1947 Cotton Bowl following his junior season. It shows him on his knees, sitting on his ankles, without a helmet and bleeding from a gash in his head after throwing a pass that was intercepted and returned for a touchdown.

Tittle resigned after the 1964 season with 33,070 vocation yards and 242 profession touchdown passes. Tittle was suffering from severe dementia. Both numbers have stood the test of time.

Tittle was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1971. Tittle was named the MVP of a game that ended in a 0-0 tie with Arkansas.
