Former West Virginia great Sam Huff, who led the Mountaineers to a 31-7 record during his 4 years in Morgantown, was just named one of the greatest game changer in the NFL. Huff was a four-year letterman and three-year starter at guard and tackle for Coach Art “Pappy” Lewis and led the Mountaineers in the 1954 Sugar Bowl.
Huff, who played for the New York Giants from 1956-1963 and for the Washington Redskins from 1964-1967, was named the 85th greatest game-changer in NFL history. Huff’s Giants played in back-to-back NFL championship games in 1958 and 1959 and lost championships in 1961, 1962 and 1963.
Huff was inducted into the College and Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1982 and was inducted into the National High School Hall of Fame in 1999.
