Sammy Baugh

Sammy Baugh passed away this week. Read this obituary from the Dallas Morning News.

He was the Redskins' No. 1 draft choice out of TCU, where he led the Horned Frogs to 29 victories and Sugar Bowl and Cotton Bowl titles in three seasons as a starter. He was a consensus All-American in 1936, his senior year. His coach, Dutch Meyer, called him "the greatest athlete I ever saw."
