Sam Huff was such a force in the National Football League in the 1950s and ’60s that CBS television produced a special called “The Violent World of Sam Huff.”
One of the first middle linebackers in the NFL, Huff was one of the game’s toughest competitors, first for the New York Giants, later for the Washington Redskins.
Huff played in six NFL Championship Games and was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1980 and the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1982.
And for more than 20 years Sam Huff was a color commentator on Redskins radio broadcasts.
I met him in 2011, when he wrote a very frank memoir.
So here now, from 2011, Sam Huff.
Sam Huff is 85 now,
