Legendary LSU quarterback and NFL Hall of Famer Y.A. Tittle has died.
LSU Football confirmed his death on Twitter. He was 90 years old.
According to NFL.com, Tittle was a star quarterback and a tailback for LSU from 1944-1947.
He was selected for seven Pro-Bowls in his 17-year career and played “deep into his 30s”:
Tittle played quarterback for the Baltimore Colts from 1948-1950 in both the All-America Football Conference and National Football League, then joined the San Francisco 49ers via the 1951 NFL Draft, where he played from 1951-1960. Tittle led an offense that featured three future Hall of Fame running backs — Hugh McElhenny, Joe Perry and John Henry Johnson — in what was known as the “Million Dollar Backfield.”
