Remembering The Greatness Of Frank Gifford

Many people of this generation only knew of Frank Gifford as a legendary sports broadcaster.  But before he won an Emmy and changed the landscape of broadcasting, Frank was a legend on the gridiron.

Frank Gifford played college football for USC.  He was named as an All-American in his senior year.  He was then drafted 11th overall by the New York Giants in the 1st round of the NFL draft in 1952.

He would go on to play in 5 championship games and win a championship with the Giants in 1956.  He was voted as the Most Valuable Player of the league during that same year.

During the height of his playing career, Frank suffered a nasty head injury on a tackle that caused him to retire in 1961.  But nothing could keep the legend down.  He returned the following year and changed positions from running back to wide receiver.  He retired from football on his own terms after the 1964 season.

By the time his playing career ended, Frank had been selected to the Pro Bowl 8 times, and had been selected as an All-Pro 6 times.  He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1977.
