  • Y.A. Tittle played in the NFL from 1948-1964 winning the AP Most Valuable Player award in 1963

Y.A. Tittle, who played 17 seasons of professional football and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1971, died Sunday at age 90.

A bloodied Y.A. Tittle kneeling on the field in 1964 is one of the most famous sports photos ever.

When Tittle left LSU as the No. 6 overall pick of the Baltimore Colts in the 1948 NFL Draft, he did so as the school's all-time leader in completions (162), passing yards (2,525) and passing touchdowns (23). In 1957, Tittle drove the National Football League with 176 pass fruitions, which practically appears to be preposterous when you understand that just a single other player in the group that year finished more than 140 passes.

At age 34, no one would've been surprised if Tittle's career went downhill in NY, but that's not what happened.

He found the greatest success during his career with the Giants, leading the team to three straight division titles toward the end of his career.

The win put them on an unassailable 13 points at the top of Group B. He said, "Nigeria can depend on Ezenwa in the match".

According to NFL.com, Tittle was a star quarterback and a tailback for LSU from 1944-1947.

Tittle retired following the 1964 season with 28,339 yards passing, 212 touchdowns and 221 interceptions.

The picture came after a play where Tittle was hit so hard that he suffered a concussion and a cracked sternum. The two numbers have stood the trial of time.

Tittle was named the league MVP in 1963.
